Purple Sweet Potato Bread

Some of you are probably sick of the babyfood posts that i’ve been putting up lately.

Today, I shall suspend baby-related activities and return to regular Crustabake-y kinda post.

“Back to basics” as everyone would say.

Basics, in Crustabakes, would probably be baked goods.

While still on a “healthy” strike,

I bring you this Purple potatoes sandwich swirled bread.

No, its not gluten free, and yes, there is sugar involved in making this.

But it’s low gluten, due to the potatoes.

And no artificial coloring was used to get this beautiful hue.

It’s all natural from the pureed purple sweet potatoes.

Purrty ain’t it?
