Sweet Potato Bread

I found this on -- DELICIOUS.

• 3 sweet potatoes
• 1 1/2 cups white sugar
• 4 eggs
• 1 cup vegetable oil
• 3/4 cup orange juice
• 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
• 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Wash sweet potatoes, slice lengthwise and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until tender, about 30 minutes. Let cool, peel and mash.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together sugar, eggs and oil. Stir in orange juice and 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. Stir flour mixture into egg/sweet potato mixture until just combined. Fold in pecans if desired. Pour batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour , or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean.
