Sweet Potato Bread

We were given several cans of sweet potatoes . . . I predict a few more sweet potato recipes coming up. This one is adapted from version.

1/2 cup vegetable oil (or, substitute applesauce)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes (1 can, rinsed and mashed)
1/3 cup water
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix together sugar and oil.  Beat in eggs, one by one.  Stir in mashed sweet potatoes and water.  In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.  Stir into the sweet potato mixture 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well.  Pour into 2 small greased loaf pans and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
