Sweet Potato Spice Loaf
3 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 cup butter, cut up
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups shredded fresh peeled sweet potato
1 clementine orange or orange
1/4 cup honey

1. Let eggs and buttermilk stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat 9x5x3 inch baking pan with nonstick spray, or, line with aluminum foil; coat lightly with flour. Set aside. In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, allspice, and nutmeg; set aside.
2. Mix together sugar and butter. Add eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add flour mixture; whisk until combined. Fold in sweet potato. Spoon batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly.
3. Bake 65-70 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched and split in top appears dry. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely about 2 hours.
4. Meanwhile, for candied clementine peel, with vegetable peeler, remove strips of peel from orange. In small microwave-safe combine peel strips and honey. Microwave on high for 30-40 seconds until warm. Cover. Let stand while cake cools. Spoon peel strips and honey over cake.
