Sweet Potato Nut Bread Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, milk, butter, and eggs. Set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flours, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the sweetpotatoes.

  4. Mix the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, stirring until almost combined. Add the nuts and raisins, gently stirring until just combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.

  5. If using the nut topping, in a small bowl, combine the nuts, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the batter.

  6. Bake 30 minutes.

  7. Cover pan loosely with foil and continue to bake until a tester inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs, 35 to 45 minutes.
