  9. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 5 – 10 minutes and then pull the edges of the parchment paper to transfer it to a cooling rack. I like to let this cool for about 30 minutes before cutting into it.

Tips

  • If you don’t have sweet potato puree, boil peeled sweet potato cubes for 10 minutes until easily pierced with a fork. Drain and transfer to a bowl. Mash with a fork and then measure 1 cup for the recipe.
  • I don’t recommend roasting or microwaving the sweet potato because it takes too much liquid out of the potato and thus the bread isn’t as moist and delicious.
