My copy of Country Living Magazine came this week and I found a really tasty recipe using Sweet Potatoes to make pound cake.
I had to try it!
(please excuse the drip marks on the page, things got messy)
The recipe was easy. The only thing that took a bit of time was cooking the sweet potato since I did not have any left over in the fridge.
The only changes I made to this recipe was a sugar drizzle on top after it was baked and cooled. Although I love Pecans my family does not. So I left them off. The next time I make this cake I think I'll make it for me and add the pecans chopped and folded into the batter.. that would really make me smile.
This was indeed a pound cake since the batter was very dry and heavy.
It was a hit!
Before anyone could devour my cake I sent a piece to one of my neighbors. He is a senior and lives alone so I'm always sending what ever new food I might bake or cook over to him.
After the pound cake was finished I went out to run some errands, was gone about an hour or so and this is what I came home to.
"My family gives this recipe an A plus"
