Sweet Potato Bread With Cinnamon Glaze

If you are an avid follower of mine, you know that my sweet tooth is huge. I was craving my chocolate banana bread the other night but then I decided to turn it up a notch by switching it to sweet potato. What makes my sweet potato bread stand out from the rest is the cinnamon glaze. It adds a special sweet and cinnamon flavor that will go great with a cup of coffee or tea.
