My sister made this the year it was published in Gourmet and it immediately became our Thanksgiving tradition! Our family gives many thanks to Aunt Cordele and her nephew!!
Nov. 30, 2008 WOW reviews at Thanksgiving dinner. For medical reasons, I left the pecans out of the topping, but did add some miniature marshmallows for a nice brown toppinng. This really went over well and everyone asked for the recipe.
This was a very good souffle but next time I will not use the coconut and almond extracts. It made it have a very strong taste that took away from the sweet potato taste. But other than that, the texture was great and it was a big hit.
