Caribbean Sweet Potato Bread

Pineapple and sweet potato puree is the greatest combination.  The recipe also takes about half the time to bake as other breads.


1 1can Farmer’s Market organic sweet potato
4 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Lawry's Caribbean Jerk Marinade with Papaya Juice
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple, well drained
1 package (1 lb. 2.5 oz.) yellow cake mix
1/2 tsp. cinnamon


In large bowl, beat together sweet potatoes and eggs until fluffy. Stir in remaining ingredients and beat on medium speed with mixer for 2 minutes. Spray two 4x8-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray; pour half of batter into each pan. Bake in preheated 375 degree F oven until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes.

    If I poured the batter into mini loaf pans, what would the cooking time be?

      Hi Lisa,

      I find that mini loaves tend to take about the same amount of time. I would check it at about the 25 minute mark with a toothpick.

      Happy Holidays!
