This recipe was originally for pumpkin bread and still can be, my friends. I just happened to have a sweet potato so therefore it became sweet potato bread. The beautiful thing? I used 1/4 cup less sugar due to the sweetness of the sweet potato. Oh yeah! It’s been years since I’ve made this recipe and I won’t let that happen again. It’s SO good!! This is a recipe to keep around for years to come. It works every time, others love it and it tastes incredibly good.

Hi Renee!

It is delicious! I used Sarah\'s Gluten-Free Flour Blend, it\'s very empowering to make it yourself! Here is a link: http://www.sarahbakesgfree.com/2012/05/sarahs-gluten-free-flour-blend.html. A Gluten Free Baking Blend will work beautifully as well, Bob\'s Red Mill is one of my very favorite brands! Hope that helps!

Happy Baking!!
