Sweet Potato, Cranberry and Apple Bread
What You’ll Need
1 1/2 C. mashed sweet potatoes (I used 1 large potato)
1/2 C. dried cranberries
1/3 C. shortening
1/2 C. sugar
2 large eggs
1 3/4 C. sifted self rising flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 medium apple, any kind, peeled and grated
How to Make It
Place the cranberries in a bowl and cover with warm water, let stand for 10 minutes and drain.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the shortening and sugar until well combined. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
Beat in the flour and mashed sweet potatoes, alternating as you add to the mixing bowl.
Add the cinnamon and beat for 1 minute.
Stir in the drained cranberries and grated apple.
Spray a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray and pour the batter into the pan, spreading it out to make it even.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.
Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning it out onto a plate or cooling rack.
