Great for holiday baking – I’ve found you can use pumpkin or sweet potato (or butternut squash too) interchangeably in just about any baking recipe that calls for one of them.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup salad oil
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 1 one pound can of sweet potatoes, liquid drained, or pumpkin
  • 3 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp soda
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice (optional)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup nuts (optional)
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)

Directions

Step 1

Cream together the sugar, salad oil, eggs and sweet potatoes or pumpkin.

Step 2

Sift together the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and spices.

Step 3

Add the flour and water alternately to the creamed mixture. You may add the optional raisins and chopped nuts at this step.

Step 4

Pour into three greased loaf size pans and bake for 60 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
