The best sweet potato souffle I've ever ate. My mother-in-law gave me this recipe about 11 years ago. She had made it for a baby shower and while the games were going on I almost devoured the whole thing, LOL. Anyway, this is how we do it in our family, and not one Holiday, picnic, or family gathering goes without one.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. For Souffle:.
  3. With mixer whip sweet potatoes, add butter, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla & sugar.
  4. Put in 9 x 13 pan & set aside.
  5. For topping:.
  6. In the order listed above (**this is a very important step to always remember) add the ingredients one at a time in a medium pan on low heat.
  7. Melt butter, add brown sugar, mix well (& at this point I usually turn the heat off), add flour, coconut & pecans.
  8. Immediately pour over the sweet potatoes and put in oven.
  9. Cook for 30-40 minutes, the souffle should not be jiggly in the middle, if so after 40 minutes add 5 minutes at a time until done. The topping should be golden.
  10. Enjoy!
