  6. Transfer the batter to the loaf pan and smooth with a spatula.
  7. Top with chopped pecans and bake for 40 minutes until the top is set and it bounces back when you press on it.

Notes

  • 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.
