Sweet Potato Tea Bread

3 cups sugar 
1 cup vegetable oil 
3 1/2 cups self-rising flour 
2 cups sweet potatoes (mashed) 
2/3 cup water 
4 eggs beaten 
1 cup raisins (coat with flour) 
1 cup chopped pecans (coat with flour) 
3 teaspoons cinnamon 
2 teaspoons nutmeg 
2 teaspoons vanilla 

Cream sugar and oil. Add eggs, sweet potatoes and water. Gradually add flour and spices. Mix in raisins and pecans. 
Spray 2 large loaf pans with cooking spray and coat with flour.
Pour in mixture. 
Bake at 325 for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly before serving.

Lisa’s Notes: This bread is delicious and courtesy of Lee Farms, a wonderful NC sweet potato grower in Four Oaks.  I like this recipe because it makes 2 loafs, one to serve and one to give as a gift.  You can also make 3 loafs using medium (8 X 4) loaf pans or 4 loaves in the mini loaf pans.
