Have I mentioned lately that I love fall baking? Pumpkin bread is an absolute favorite in our home, but for some reason I rarely make it except during October. . . maybe November. However, rumor has it that canned Pumpkin may be in short supply this year, and when I couldn't find Pumpkin at Publix I tried out a little canned Sweet Potatoes. Guess what? It works! (I was shocked!)
So, if you can find canned pumpkin, you may want to grab an extra can or two this fall; but if not, try out canned sweet potato (mashed & drained. . . ) as a great substitute. Check out this so-yummy-my-kids-ate-a-loaf-in-24-hours recipe:
