Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am waiting to make this bread but my can of sweet potatoes is 40oz. How many CUPS do you use for this recipe?

I would use about 1/2 of the potatoes less a potato or two after you have drained them. You can save the syrup for the remaining half if you have other plans for them.

1 cup equals 8 oz., so you would need two cups because the can in the recipe is 16 oz.

I'm sure this could be made gluten free with Pamela's pancake and baking mix. I intend to try!!



Do you mean 2 1/2 cups of bisquick AND 2 1/2 cups of pancake mix? or just bisquick. I'm confused. 5 total cups or just 2 1/2 cups of bisquick.

Whether BISQUICK or BAKER'S CORNER or any one of many other baking mixes, the box will say the mix is for Pancakes, Waffles, Buiscuits, Muffins, etc..., so just 2 1/2 cups of any one of those mixes will do.

It is 2-1/2 cups of pancake and baking mix, using a brand such as Bisquick. The total amount is 2-1/2 cups.

All-Star Zucchini

This mouthwatering dish features an all-star summer line-up of zucchini, tomatoes, basil, garlic, and more. To say that our All-Star Zucchini is flavorful is an understatement! It's just as amazing on its own as it is served over a bed of pasta. Yum!
