  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Cake
  • 2 cups cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 11/2 cups milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Topping
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • Glaze
  • 1½ cups confectionery sugar
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla


Roast the sweet potatoes until tender in a 400 degree oven. Poke them with a fork before baking. The time will depend on the size of the potatoes. I used 2 large ones. They took 45 minutes. Cool.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees or 325 degrees for a glass pan. Spray the pan with cooking spray.
Remove the skins from the potatoes and put them in a mixer bowl. Mash them well. Add the sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla. Mix together until incorporated. Add the eggs. Mix well.
Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add half of the mixture to the sweet potato mixture with half of the milk. Mix thoroughly. Add remaining flour and milk. Mix thoroughly. Pour the batter into the prepared 9 x 13 pan.
Mix together the topping ingredients. Spoon in teaspoons all over the top of the dough. Take a knife and lightly run thru the cinnamon mixture.
Bake for 45 - 55 minutes until a tester pulls out clean. Cool.
Mix together glaze ingredients. You want it to be a little runny. Glaze randomly over top of coffee cake.
