Sweet Potato Pound Cake

This cake was a hit at my cookie exchange. The sweet potato really made for a moist cake and the cream cheese icing too it to the next level. The recipe is below, happy baking.

Sweet Potato Cake with Cheese Icing

For the cake:
2-3 fairly large red sweet potatoes (enough to make 2 cups cooked & mashed)
2 3/4 cups cake flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup soft butter
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Pre-heat your oven to 350
Spray you baking pan
Sift your dry ingredients and set aside
Cream your butter and sugar, add your sweet potatoes and then your eggs one at a time
Once your wet ingredient are fold in your flour and mix well

Bake it- cool it- frost it and enjoy it

Hungraciously Yours,
MiMi J
