This sweet potato banana bread is so good. It freezes well and keeps in the refrigerator for several days. We love it with coffee for breakfast and as a snack anytime. This bread makes a great gift, too.1 large sweet potato, cooked, peeled and mashed or 1 cup (You could probably use canned, too, but I have not tried it.) 1 cup white sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup oil (I used Canola) 1 cup mashed bananas 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoons bourbon whiskey (Optional) 2 eggs 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 cup nuts of your choice (I used pecans) Combine sweet potatoes, white sugar, brown sugar, oil, bananas, vanilla, whiskey and eggs in a large bowl mixing well with a spoon. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well with a wire whisk. Mix the two together with a spoon. Pour into a sprayed loaf pan and top with nuts. (This will make one large loaf or two small loaves). Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until center is done or about 40 minutes. Enjoy! Don’t Forget to Pin!
