Sweet potatoes are for more than supper! Bring them to the breakfast table this week, with these Sweet Potato Muffins for a sweet and savory start to your day.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin cups.
In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, sugar, oil, and water; mix well. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt; mix well. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until well blended. Stir in pecans. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the muffins comes out dry.
