All of the flavors of fall are right here in one little loaf: Cranberries, sweet potatoes and walnuts. So, Duckie, you need wait no longer. Ben will love this, and so will everyone else!
CRANBERRY SWEET POTATO BREAD
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup cranberries, chopped after measuring
1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
Stir together all of the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl. Add the potato, eggs, milk and butter and blend well. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts. Turn into a greased and floured loaf pan, and bake at 350F for 55 to 65 minutes. Makes 1 loaf.
Now, of course, I doubled this. And, of course, it was gone in 2 days, even without all of my big kids home. And since they heard about it from Patrick, they're whining that they want it when they come home. Well, I haven't begun Thanksgiving week menu planning yet, so there is plenty of time for requests.
And Pam will note that I've named this properly: with a list of ingredients!
Thor thanks all of you for the well wishes for his boy Ryan. Ryan seems to be improving, but they've spent 3 days now heavily involved in Thor's favorite activity: napping. And Thor's rather offended that Patrick is oinking at Ryan; I keep telling Patrick, "No! We can't have that here!"
Have a great weekend, everyone. It's supposed to be sunny, and maybe approach 60 degrees here, so Thor and the boys may get some romping time after all!
