This is a recipe I found over at Bonnie the Baker, and I love it! Talk about a comfort food. A slice of this bread + a cup of coffee = perfect way to start the day!

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup of packed dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
some cinnamon {I poured about 3 teaspoons}
some ground nutmeg {I poured about 2 teaspoons}
1 15 ounce can of Sweet Potato
1 cup of olive oil
1 or more teaspoons of maple syrup
1/3 cup of water

Place all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and gently stir together. Pour all other ingredients into medium bowl and stir carefully. Add wet ingredients from the smaller bowl into the dry ingredients into the larger bowl. Fold until batter is well combined. Make sure to get all the flour off the of bottom of the bowl. Grease two bread pans and pour batter equally into both pans. Layer batter with blueberry sauce. Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 1 hour. Enjoy!


  1. Update: I made this bread this week and it is PHENOMENAL. I mean seriously amazing. I used fresh sweet potato (baked and mashed) and blueberry preserves instead of blueberry sauce or ice cream topping and I can't stop eating it.
