Hi My Cooking Spot readers!! This is Megan – The Emotional Baker and I’m back with another baking favorite!


When I was in high school, my mom told me about bread baking. I was fascinated and couldn’t wait to try it myself. 

The first recipe I used came from a bag of King Arthur Flour Whole Wheat Flour. I was immediately hooked!

I go through phases where I make the same bread over and over. Other times, I like to switch things up and try my own recipes. Either way, you can guarantee there’s always freshly baked bread in my house.

This Sweet Potato Banana Bread version is perfect for fall and Thanksgiving. It puts old bananas to good use and uses my favorite vegetable 🙂

There’s no reason to be intimidated by bread making. If I can do it, you can too! Here are some tips for bread baking:

  • When dissolving yeast, be careful with water temperature. My rule is always use lukewarm – it should only feel slightly warm, not hot.
  • Stir the yeast and water together and then leave it alone for at least 5 minutes. When you come back, it should be dissolved and easy to stir together.
  • Not sure how to knead? Watch this video. 
  • For a moist loaf, be cautious when adding extra flour. Too much can lead to a dry loaf. If you’ve added most of the flour listed in the recipe, switch to oil to grease hands so you can finish kneading the dough.

Hope you love bread baking! It really is satisfying once you get the hang of it 🙂 & when you do, be sure to try this Banana Cashew Butter Yeast Bread 😉
