By now most of you know that when I have company coming into town I bake muffins. But did you know that most Fridays if we’re planning to be home for the weekend I bake bread?
It’s true. I think it’s nice to have a little something to nibble on in the morning (or as a snack) and it’s a change of pace from the normal Monday through Friday routine.
But seriously – what isn’t too love about homemade bread? Or any other baked goodie for that matter?
This sweet potato bread is inspired by carrot cake (Big Guy’s favorite) and I knew he would flip over a slice of this raisin-studded, pecan-filled loaf that also included some homegrown sweet potato.
The loaf of bread is then topped with a light cream cheese frosting that has a fresh lemon zing.
It’s perfection. And I can already tell you that this recipe immediately got filed in the “make again” folder.
