I love easy quick bread recipes! I make zucchini bread every summer, pumpkin bread every fall, and banana bread year-round.
This Sweet Potato Pie Bread is a great Thanksgiving-time quick bread, and even though Thanksgiving is over, I’m not finished enjoying sweet potatoes, cranberries, or any of the other Thanksgiving foods.
This Sweet Potato Pie Bread is a perfect-post Thanksgiving quick bread because you can use leftover mashed sweet potatoes to make the bread.

Sweet Potato Pie Bread
Sweet Potato Pie Bread
- 1½ c . all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp . baking powder
- 1 tsp . ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp . ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp . baking soda
- 1/4 tsp . salt
- 1/2 c . butter
- 3/4 c . granulated sugar
- 1/4 c . light-brown sugar
- 1 tsp . vanilla extract
- 1 c . plain leftover mashed sweet potatoes
- 2 large eggs
Browned Butter Glaze
- 1/4 c. butter
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
- In a large bowl beat butter, sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
- Blend in sweet potatoes; then eggs, one at time. With mixer on low, add flour mixture in thirds; blend just enough to combine.
- Spoon batter into a prepared loaf pan.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 60-75 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool, about 15 minutes.
- Remove cake from pan to cool completely.
- To make the glaze, add butter to a heavy saucepan.
- Cook butter over medium heat until it starts to foam, stirring frequently. Stop stirring, and let it continue to cook until amber brown.
- Remove from heat, and stir in powdered sugar and enough milk to make glaze desired consistency. If your powdered sugar is lumpy, sifting it will help make the glaze smoother.
- Drizzle over cooled bread. Top with chopped pecans, if desired.

Can this recipe be made in a regular cake pan ?
I haven’t tried that, but I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t. It’s basically a loaf cake, so it *should* work well in a different pan.
I made this yesterday and took to work today as a surprise treat. It was an epic hit! Thank you for this delicious recipe!
Thank you! I’m glad that it was a hit. =) Thanks for commenting!
