Sweet Potato Pound Cake – This recipe is a new spin on the traditional pound cake. It makes a delicious cake that tastes similar to sweet potato pie.


1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 cups of sugar

2 1/2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes

3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla extractInstructions


Preheat oven to 350º. Beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy.

Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears. Add sweet potatoes, and beat well.

Stir together flour, next 3 ingredients, and, if desired, cinnamon in a medium bowl.

Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
