Place the mashed sweet potatoes into a separate mixing bowl; a the sugar to the potatoes, then add the oil, buttermilk and the vanilla into the mixture.
Break the egg into the mixture then whisk until blended together well.
Transfer the sweet potato mixture into the bowl with the flour mixture.

Sweet potatoes make breads very moist so there’s no need for a lot of extra butter or oil.  Sweet potatoes are also a great source of beta carotene along other nutrients making them a healthy choice any time of year.  Pumpkin can be used in place the sweet potatoes if you prefer.
