After Thanksgiving this year, I decided to venture outside the box and transform what was remaining of my favorite holiday side dish into breakfast for the next morning.
I wondered if that scrumptious sweet potato casserole could be made into a quick bread. After all, we’re talking about a Sweet Potato Casserole with Brown Sugar Streusel that is pretty much a dessert disguised as a side dish.
Why wouldn’t it be totally awesome in a sweet quick bread?
So, I went to town in the kitchen and got baking.
(Spoiler: You can use fresh mashed sweet potatoes if no leftover casserole is sitting around!)
You’d think I’d be done with the kitchen for awhile after cooking an entire Thanksgiving feast. That would be true for normal people. I don’t claim to be normal at all.
It took me until almost midlife to realize it’s good to be different 🙂
I suppose it would have helped for me to post this dee-li-cious sweet potato bread earlier, since all your leftovers were surely gobbled up days ago.
BUT – if you’re planning on doing a sweet potato casserole for December holidays, OR if you want to bake a few sweet potatoes for the sheer joy of this magnificent bread… you will be nicely rewarded.
This sweet potato bread is super moist, dense, full of fall spices, and just the right amount of sweetness.
For serious yum factor, add this easy cinnamon glaze from our favorite pumpkin scones and drizzle away!

Here’s that Spice Glaze (via pumpkin scones) – I use this glaze on SO many treats:
Sweet Potato Cinnamon Muffins are super moist, tender, and cute! Healthy to boot.
Can’t leave out my all-time-forever-favorite Pumpkin Bread, cuz it’s still fall…
