Strands of grated, in-season sweet potato give this versatile quick bread natural sweetness that works both with coffee in the morning or a scoop of ice cream for dessert. While full of typical fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, a heavy dose of cardamom adds an almost savory twist. The loaf stays fresh for days, and the flavor gets even more pronounced as it rests.
Though perfect on its own, you can add a variety of chopped nuts and dried fruits to suit your taste. We suggest currants and crystallized ginger, or toasted pecans and dried cranberries.
