 Ingredients List

  • 3-5 sweet potatoes or yams, peeled, chunked and boiled in salted water until tender or 1-2 cans canned sweet potatoes or yams drained of liquids
  • 1 - 1 1/2 C. dark brown sugar
  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 C. butter
  • 1 t. cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a shallow flat baking dish with cooking spray and add the drained cool potatoes. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and dot with butter.

Adjust the amounts of brown sugar and butter to the amount of sweet potatoes you are making.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake about 30 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. The liquids should have melted together and formed a dark thick syrup that clings to the potatoes when they are turned. You may serve like this or top with marshmallows and brown them a few minutes under the broiler. You may also spread with marshmallow cream or fluff and brown the top. It's all good.
