INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup firmly packed Domino® Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato, cooked and mashed
  • 1/2 cup currants

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x5x2-inch or 8 1/2x4 1/2-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, salt and nutmeg; whisk lightly to blend.

In medium mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar and oil together on medium speed until creamy. Beat in sweet potato until just combined. Add sweet potato mixture to dry ingredients in two batches, beating on low speed for about 1 minute after each addition. Mix just until blended; fold in currants. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake for about 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan, on wire rack, for 15 minutes. Turn onto rack to finish cooling.

QUICK TIP

Raisins may be substituted for currants.
