Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Place sweet potato on a microwave-safe plate and pierce skin 5 or 6 times. Cook in the microwave, rotating halfway through, until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes. Peel and mash in a small bowl.
Mix whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl.
Whisk applesauce, eggs, and maple syrup together in a separate bowl. Mix in 1 cup mashed sweet potato.
Pour applesauce mixture over flour mixture; stir to combine. Fold in walnuts. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes; invert onto a wire rack and let cool completely, about 20 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
