Sweet Potato Bread & Pineapple Butter

This was scrumdidiliumptious! The girls and I could not stop eating it! (Kenneth wasn't home at the time. Plus he has more self control than I do anyway.) Believe it or not I even made it healthier than the actual recipe. I will put those changes in red.

Sweet Potato Bread & Pineapple Butter

* Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling


* 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour + 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour)
* 1-1/2 cups sugar
* 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
* 1/2 cup canola oil (I used 1/4 cup applesauce + 1/4 cup oil)
* 1/3 cup water

* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, well drained
(I didn't want to make so much and only had a portion of a can of pineapple in the fridge, so made much less. It was plenty for my loaf.)


* In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, potatoes, oil and water. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
* Transfer to a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
* In a small bowl, combine butter and pineapple. Serve with bread. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices) and 1 cup butter.


  1. Oooh, this sounds so yummy. Sweet Potatoes are on sale right now at Safeway too! Thanks Heidi!

  2. I love I have tried a few things on there and loved everything. I was watching a local news program a while back and they made a recipe that is sooooo good.
