“A lady I work with heard me taking about ZWT and that we were doing Cajun/Creole cooking. She said this was from Louisiana. I have not tried in but anything with yams AND pecans can't be bad.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar and oil. Add eggs and beat until blended. In a separate bowl, mix flour with salt, baking soda and pecans, then combine with the wet ingredients. Add mashed yams, incorporating thoroughly.
  2. Line the bottom of a tube pan with waxed paper and lightly grease the sides. Pour in the batter and bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, 60 - 75 minutes.
  3. About 15 minutes before the bread is done, melt the butter for the glaze in a small saucepan and stir in sugar and yam juice. Boil until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Pour glaze over the top of the bread as soon as it comes out of oven. Let cool, then turn out of pan.
