Lazy Sunday Sweet Potato Bread

CUPCAKE LOVERS! Have you entered my GIVEAWAY for three sets of moonbeamwishes cards yet?


I don’t usually do Sunday blog posts, but I thought this was the perfect recipe for a lazy Sunday!


A few weeks ago, I had an immense craving for sweet potatoes.  But not just plain sweet potatoes, I wanted Sweet Potato Bread.  My first instinct was to check Allrecipes and to my excitement I found the perfect recipe!  And the reason I am posting it here, is because it is MOIST, DELICIOUS, SEMI-HEALTHY, AND PERFECT FOR AUTUMN!


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins (I left these out because I didn’t have any)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F ( 165 degrees C ). Grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg cinnamon, and sugar. Add the eggs, oil, and milk; mix until well blended. Finally, stir in the mashed sweet potatoes, pecans, and golden raisins. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow bread to cool in the pan at least 15 minutes before removing. For best flavor, store overnight before serving.

There’s no better recipe than one where you just mix a bunch of ingredients together, pour it into a pan, and let it bake!  Not to mention, it makes your house smell pretty darn good too!  You should really try it!

    Happy Sunday! This looks delicious and it is very ironic because today I am searching for new recipes and bookmarking them 🙂

    Since you are the absolute QUEEN of weddings, I wanted to very quickly share with you a fun experience I had last night. My boyfriends cousin got married and all of us cousins (there are 26 on one side of the family and I am considered *one of them* lol) decided to surprise the bride and groom by doing a MOB FLASH DANCE. It was a huge wedding with over 300 guests and we got almost everybody to partcipate. It was pure awesomesauce… good times!!
