I can't stop making this cake and people can't stop asking me to. I pride myself on making good homemade cakes. But this cake even my 14 yr.old has declared her favorite! For me this is not a "left over" sweet potato cake, as coming from the South, sweet potatoes done right never last to be "left over". Therefore starting with fresh sweet potatoes, boiled and mashed I take the sugar up to 2 cups, using 1 cup of granulated white sugar and 1 cup of firmly packed light brown sugar. This amount of sugar is typical for any homemade cake. I also use 2 tsp. of vanilla and about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. This cake is super moist and can stand on it's own. However to really take it over the moon, and make my Southern Mama proud, I make a super light and very fluffy homemade cream cheese frosting. From the first slice, even the cake plate is barely left over.
