It’s fall. The perfect time to make something awesome, particularly if that awesome thing is made with cinnamon, pumpkin or sweet potato, and pecans.
I vowed last week to try them all and started with the Carrot Coconut Bread. Today, it’s Sweet Potato Pecan Bread.
- 1 cup pureed sweet potatoes
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup water
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2¼ cups flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup chopped pecans
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
Preheat your oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the sweet potato puree, vegetable oil, brown sugar, water, eggs and vanilla. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, orange zest and pecans.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Bake 60 to 70 minutes.
It’s delicious and tastes just like fall.
