  • 1 1/2 Lb sweet potatoes , peeled and cubed
  • 3 1/2 Cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves , ground
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 Cup vegetable oil
  • 3 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 Cup raisins
Cover sweet potatoes with water and bring to boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 minutes until tender. Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Drain potatoes and set aside 2/3 whole cup cooking liquid. Mash potatoes and set aside.

Sift flour and next 5 ingredients together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of mixture. Combine next 3 ingredients in another large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Stir in mashed sweet potatoes and reserved cooking liquid until thoroughly combined. Stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Stir in pecans and raisins. Divide batter evenly into 3 whole greased and floured 8x4 inch loaf pans. Bake about 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center. Cover with foil after 50 minutes to prevent excess browning. Transfer pans to a wire rack and cool 10 minutes before turning out loaves. Continue to cool on racks.
