Sweet Potato Bread

Reminiscent of pumpkin bread, this is fabulous with a little butter (tastes like a muffin)

2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 cups mashed canned candied yams or 2 cups sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, oil, egg, sweet potatoes and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients (except walnuts) together well and add to wet ingredients. Stir until just combined. Fold in walnuts. Pour into 2 standard loaf pans. Bake for 75 minutes or until thin knife inserted in center comes out clean.
