Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease 2 (9x5-inch) loaf pans.

In large bowl combine eggs oil, apple sauce, and vanilla. Stir in sweet potatoes and orange peel or extract.

In separate bowl combine flour, sugars, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder.

Stir flour mixture into sweet potato mixture until just combined.

Divide batter evenly between the 2 loaf pans and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until tooth pick inserted near the center comes back out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes in pans before taking a butter knife and loosening the edges of the bread from the pans. Turn out bread onto a wire baker's rack and cover with a dry towel until completely cooled.
