This bread has the perfect texture and freshness of muffins with sweet potato to add a little extra moistness, all those lovely spices, and fat raisins laced through the whole thing. Slathered with tahini, or peanut butter, all melty and drippy and falling into every fresh crevice, this bread is the best a little warm out of the oven. But, trust me, it’s still awesome on day 2. Don’t ask me about day 3 though, because it didn’t last that long.
