I still had some cranberries in the freezer, so I figured I'd make some Cranberry Sweet Potato Quick Bread. The sweet potatoes and cranberries make this bread look a bit festive - perfect for brightening up your morning just a bit. :) I'd even call this bread healthy - only a quarter cup each of butter and sugar per loaf. (You could go lower depending on your sweet potatoes and preferences.
Plus, you've got cranberries, considered a superfruit, and sweet potatoes, ranked #1 in nutritional value by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. This bread tasted sweet and tangy on its own, but next time, I might add some chopped nuts for extra texture.
