1/2tsp nutmeg ( or pumkin spice mix)

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/3C shortening

2/3C sugar

2 eggs

1 c of mashed sweet potatoes

If you are using fresh sweet potato. Peel and cube up potatoes and place in covered bowl with a little water and cook about 5 minutes or until tender. Let cool and mash.

Cream shortening add sugar. Beat. Add eggs Beat. Add dry ingredients Beat. Add potatoes in Beat. Pour into a well greased loaf pan and cook at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.
