Sweet Potato Bread

LeitchyCreates

It's bread week on The Great British Bake Off tomorrow so I've made some bread all in the spirit of the show! Who's is going to play along with me too? This is a homemade gluten free loaf. Using sweet potato to keep it nice and moist and sandwich bread like. Perfect for any time of day! I love mine with eggs or toasted with almond butter and banana slices. It's also yummy sandwich style and taken on the go and even dipped in soups and stews! Enjoy, LC x
