Holiday Left-Over Sweet Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Do it with carrots! I had some leftover carrots that I needed to use up, and so I cooked and mashed them and used them in place of the sweet potatoes and it came out so delicious. My kids are already asking for another piece. I did made a few changes- I used only 1 cup white sugar and I had added a 1/2 cup brown sugar to the carrots which made the cake the perfect amount of sweet. I was out of eggs so I substituted mayo (which i have done several times with cakes and it works great) about 4TBSP, I just eyeball it. The beer is completely unnecessary so I omitted it and nothing tasted like it was missing. If your batter needs thinning, milk works great in place of the beer, but I only used a little- not a complete half cup. My carrots had extra moisture and my batter was perfect. No icing necessary, but u could use it if you wanted extra sweetness. A great versatile recipe, thanks!
