'Southern' Sweet Potato/e Bread

Potatoe VS Potato? I guess really i should have labelled my photos with 'Potato' as the recipe is from America after all, oh well.

I am not sure how authentically southern this recipe actually is, my friend who is from the south had never even heard of it before mashaAllah

After googling pics i discovered not only mine had huge cracks in the surface, this is more than likely due to the high sugar content, my oven running too hot or a combination of both factors.

Once you taste this quick bread you will definitely feel your in autumn, even if in fact you are in the hot desert.

Please check if using pumpkin spice for nutmeg as it is haram, both in the small quantity aswell as the large quantity Masha Allah

Salam Alaikum sisters,

Thank you all for dropping by to read and leave comments.

@sanaa - well it's quite hard to describe actually as I thought it would just taste sweet after the natural sugars in th potatoe and 1cup granulated sugar but its to all that sweet, I would say it tastes a bit like carrot cake but milder in flavour which is perfect cos I'm not a huge fan of carrot cake lol but I think the pecan nuts are a great addition to this bread and give it lots of texture otherwise it would just be too moist. I will be honest dh doesn't like it that was even before he tasted it because I told him what it was made of lol so from now I think I will only bake when he asks for something specific because i get upset easily!
@umm Imran - inshaAllah sis I hope you try and like it.

Hi Asmaa, I grew up in South. I have been living in New York for 30 years now and consider myself a Souhern Belle at heart. I have to say your bread looks as Southern as they come. Sweet Potato bread is as popular as Sweet Potato Pie in the Southern region of America. You did a fantastic job and I will definitely try your recipe out. I have a few friends down South that I will be sharing your recipe with...drooling over the pictures! YUM!!!
