Billie’s Southern Sweet Potato Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling
love this recipe; always make it for my son's and husband's birthday. has anyone made this into cupcakes? is the end product just as good?
Absolutely delicious cake...my go to recipe when treating friends. I have made this several times and have always used what the stores call sweet potatoes (pale and white) and it never looked like the picture. This time, however, I used yams, which was the simple solution to get the color I wanted. The taste is always incredible, no matter the color.
My family loved it. It tastes like carrot cake! lol No nuts or spices other than cinnamon due to lack and 1c veg oil and 1 stick unsalted butter.
Cake was quite oily. I used 2 cups of vegetable oil and not canola oil, perhaps that's why. If you use vegetable oil, i recommend using 1.5 or 1-3/4 c. of oil. Other wise, it was good and not too sweet.
WOW...I officially have a new favorite cake. This is amazing. I had some sweet potatoes to use up and thought about roasting them, but decided to do a search on the internet first and am I sure glad I did. I am a baker, but not much of a sweet eater, but will definitely be devouring this cake. It is so moist and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. Does Billie have a blog or other recipes? I would love to see what other fabulous recipes she has.
Moist and delicious! Reminds me of Carrot Cake. Freezes well (frosting and all) and defrosts in less than an hour!
Moist and tasty
I only added cup and a half of sugar for the cake and it was perfect. My husband really liked it.
A delicious moist cake with just the right amount of spice. Tastes even better the next day!
Made this cake for a family friend. He went crazy over it !!!!!!
