Sweet Potato Cranberry Sauce Bread


Uses up these two holiday leftovers. It has a festive flavor and is so moist! I made this up based on another recipe and made it specific to what I had on hand. You can do the same. I love the combo of nutmeg and allspice... it just says holidays!

Prep Time:

Total Time:
1 hrs 5 mins
4 mini loaves


  • 1 cup cranberry sauce, or more to taste

  • 1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes

  • 3 eggs

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 cup raisins, or more to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 4 mini loaf pans.

  2. Combine cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, eggs, white sugar, oil, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add flour, nutmeg, allspice, baking soda, and baking powder; mix well. Fold raisins into the batter.

  3. Divide batter evenly among the loaf pans.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Place loaf pans on a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

You can also add nuts or cranberries if desired and use more mashed sweet potatoes (up to 2 cups), depending how much you have left over. Substitute leftover sweet potato casserole for the mashed potatoes if desired.

Baking time is longer for a large loaf pan and shorter for muffin pans. Just check with a toothpick to make sure it is done.
