Sweet Potato Loaf

Perfect for those nice holiday seasons to share with your family and friends or even just for the odd weekend you want to treat your self and others after a long day of studying/working. 


It's so delicious, stick in some candles and you could use it as a birthday cake! 



  • 1 cup Milk

  • ½ tsp. Apple cider vinegar/lemon juice

  • 1/3 cup Olive oil

  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract

  • 1 tbsp. Ground flaxseeds

  • 2 cups Grated, raw sweet potato (~1 large potato)

  • 2 cups Flour

  • ¼ cup Sugar

  • ¼ cup Brown sugar

  • 2½ tsp. Ground cinnamon  

  • 1 tsp. Ground ginger

  • 1 tsp. Baking soda

  • ½ tsp. Baking powder

  • ½ tsp. Salt    

  • 1 cup Chopped nuts – I used walnuts



  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a loaf pan.

  2. Mix together the milk and vinegar in a small bowl and let it sit for a few minutes.

  3. In a large bowl mix together the oil, vanilla extract, and ground flaxseeds.

  4. Stir in the milk mixture and the grated sweet potato.

  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Pour these dry ingredients into the bowl with all the wet ingredients in it and mix until there are only a few dry spots.

  6. Dump in the nuts and mix it together a couple of times.

  7. Pour the batter into your loaf pan.

  8. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

  9. Enjoy :)
