Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-2/3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten,
  • 2 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, pie spice, baking powder and salt. In another large bowl, combine the eggs, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in pecans.
  2. Pour into 2 greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55-60 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over cooled loaves.
