How to Make Sweet Potato Bread

Instructions to make sweet potato bread step by step.

This recipe is pretty easy to make.

First, whisk together all the wet ingredients in a large bowl.

Then, add the dry ingredients.

Fold in some pecans if you’d like.

For best results, sift your dry ingredients before measuring and adding them to the wet.

Sifting the dry ingredients before measuring provides a more accurate measurement (very important for baked goods) and also helps all of the dry ingredients blend together seamlessly by breaking down any clumps.

Tips on Measuring Ingredients

When measuring dry ingredients, you are going to be mostly using measuring cups and spoons.

 You want to pack your dry ingredients tightly into the cups and then level off using the back of a knife or other flat utensil.

Note: Occasionally recipes may give you a measurement by weight; for this, you would need a kitchen scale
