Sweet Potato Bread with Cinnamon-Honey & Cranberry Spread

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

What is your favorite place to shop when you need to buy a few groceries but you don't want to deal hustle and bustle of the busy super markets?

For me, it's the local Dollar General.

I tend to get stressed out in crowded areas and unfortunately the super markets in my town are always crowded. Lucky for me though, there is a Dollar General a few blocks from my house! I can usually find the most of the items on my shopping list there, and they are never crowded. This is especially true around the holidays. Last year I was able to purchase the a lot of my baking ingredients, presents, and gift wrap at dollar general.

Speaking of holidays..., you guys are in for a real treat today because this recipe is amazing. If you decide to try any new recipes this season, make this the one! The sweet potatoes, apple sauce and buttermilk in this recipe do an amazing job at keeping the bread amazingly soft and moist.

Sweet Potato Bread

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 25 Minutes

Total Time: 45 Minutes


  • 1 Can Sweet Potatoes (drained)
  • 2 Tbs Apple Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1 3/4 Cups Flour
  • 1 1/4 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Tbs Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar


  1. Preheat Over to 350* and grease your bread pans
  2. Combine sweet potatoes, apple sauce, vegetable Oil, buttermilk, and vanilla in medium sized bowl. Mix until well.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and light brown sugar in large bowl. Mix well.
  4. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Using a spoon, mix until well blended making sure not to over mix.
  5. Cook until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. My muffins were done in about 18-20 minutes and the mini loaf pans took about 25 minutes. You could also cook in a 9x5 loaf pan for about an hour although I have not tried that size it so I'm not sure.

Many of you already know that I am a huge supporter of our military troops. I myself, am prior military and my husband is as well. We also, still keep in touch with many of the men and women that we served with. So It is no surprise that I get excited when I discover that a product I enjoy is also a military supporter.

I recently discovered that this fall, Marie Callender’s is launching the Comforts From Home Project by bringing the comforts of home to those who protect America’s homes every day. I knew I had to get in on the action so I popped into my local grocery store and purchased a few of Marie Callender's participating products. (Look for the image below on specially marked packages.)

Marie Callender’s Comforts From Home Project makes it easy to support the brave men and women of the U.S. military. Simply enter the eight-digit code found on specially marked packages of Marie Callender’s dinners and desserts online at www.ComfortsFromHome.com, and they will send a donation to USO2GO. Each code entered equals a $0.50 donation to the USO2GO program.

Each kit will contain the comforts of home, such as games, athletic equipment, books and furnishings.

Visit Comforts From Home to learn more about how you can join Marie Callender's in helping to bring a little bit of home sweet home to our U.S. service men and women overseas.
