Sweet Potato Bread with Raisins and Walnuts

Sweet Potato Bread with Raisins and Walnuts

We don’t bake bread very much any more, mostly because we don’t eat very much of it. But this loaf is special. Full of walnuts and raisins, flavoured with sweet potato, it is a tempting loaf. We love it for breakfast, slightly toasted with real butter. Enjoy!
