    I made this last night. I pureed 2 (white) sweet potatoes in the blender (with added water for smoothness). They were quite large. I baked the bread (4 small loaves and 1 9×5) and it was BEAUTIFUL! After about 55 minutes I took it out and it FELL! Not sure if maybe I added too much water to puree the sweet potatoes?

      Hi Laura,

      Oh no! There is nothing worse than spending so much time and energy on a recipe only to have it fall! Baking can be very fickle. My initial thought is that it’s a combination of minor tweaks. Next time, measure out the amount of sweet potato you have on hand to make sure that it is 15 oz (roughly 1 7/8 cups) also try and mash the sweet potato using a food processor so that you won’t need to add water. In the meantime, cover up that hole with some homemade whipped cream (beat 1 cup heavy cream, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until stiff peaks form) and no one will be the wiser.

      Happy Holidays!
