Sweet Potato Oatmeal Bread (for Bread Machine)

In my quest to make homemade bread I have rediscovered my Bread Machine.  I have had a Bread Machine for years, in fact I am on my second one having worn out my first one.  But I had forgotten about it.  It has sat on a shelf or on my counter, collecting dust for month-long stretches.  Periodically I will notice it and think “O you should make some bread” and then discover I didn’t have the ingredients and forget about it again.  This year is going to be different; I will use my Bread Machine!!  I have already used it several times to make old favorite bread recipes and have started experimenting with new recipes.  I have made this bread several times and my family has decided it a keeper. 
It is a modification of an Oatmeal Bread recipe.  I added sweet potato puree (I am looking for ways to use up my sweet potatoesJ  I bake several up at a time and the ones I don’t use I scoop out the flesh and freeze it until I need it) to the recipe and decreased the amount of sugar.  The bread is slightly sweet and is wonderful warm or toasted for breakfast.  Enjoy and may it be a part of your Sweet Morning!
