The incredible sweet potato. Not only is this fall classic super delicious and packed full of flavor, this amazing, orange-colored favorite is also one of the most healthy vegetables out there. Packed full of vitamins B, C, and D, and a great source for potassium, magnesium, and iron, these spectacular spuds keep you looking young, strengthen your heart, and also serve as an anti-stress mineral.
With all these benefits and more, it's no wonder we love these versatile veggies, especially during the fall. It's that love for sweet potatoes that led me to today's recipe.

1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 Tbsp Honeyville Buttermilk Powder + 1/4 cup Water

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, and whisk together until combined.
Return to your mashed sweet potatoes and add eggs, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla, and whisk together until full combined.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until a thick batter forms.
Cover your USA Pan Large Loaf Pan with parchment paper, then pour batter into the pan.
