Sweet Potato Bread

Sweet Potato Bread

Recipe Details:

This delicious and moist bread is more of a cake than a bread. In fact, serving it with ice cream – dairy free of course – makes a wonderful desert. Feel free to adjust the cayenne pepper, some people can't take the heat while others love it. And if you don't have a can of sweet potatoes in your pantry, you may substitute pumpkin. On occasion I've even thrown in a cup of hazelnuts. One thing is for certain, no one will guess that it's gluten free and egg free.
