I love dessert breads. Who doesn't? Today, I wanted to make banana bread, but had no ripe bananas and suddenly wondered if sweet potato bread "was a thing". So, I looked it up and found a few recipes. I decided to try it out and here is my veganized recipe!
1/2 cup maple sugar (not syrup)
1 cup sucanat (if you don't have maple sugar or sucanat, 1 1/2 cups sugar will work)
1/2 cup coconut oil (or any vegetable oil)
ener-g egg replacer for 2 eggs
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (if you don't have whole wheat pastry, use all purpose)
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
a dash of cardamom
a dash of ginger
1/3 cup water
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine and beat the maple sugar, sucanat, and coconut oil. Add the egg replacer.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and ginger.
Add half of the dry mixture to the wet mixture and add the water. Mix well.
Add the other half of the dry mixture and mix well.
Add the sweet potatoes and mix well.
Pour the batter into a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes!
