Today was the first big snow of the year and it wreaked havoc on the roads. I was planning on going into the city for my last midwife appointment but we stayed home instead. Zoe and I decided to do some baking today and we made this delicious loaf. I added some white chocolate and skor bits and I think it made it even better. This loaf is also surprisingly light. Mmmm....I am going to go and have another slice.
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup water
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1.Combine sugar and oil; beat well. Add eggs and beat. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with water. Stir in sweet potatoes and chopped nuts.
2.Pour batter into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan (or 2 small loaf pans). Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about one hour.
