I got this recipe from a woman in Texas. Everyone absolutely loves it. Loaded with butter and sugar, it tastes like dessert! I make it every Thanksgiving and everyone asks to take the leftovers home with them. If you like things less sweet, cut back on the white sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sweet potatoes, 2/3 cup butter, salt, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and 4 tsp flour. Pour into a greased 9 x 13” casserole dish.
  2. Combine brown sugar, remaining butter, and remaining flour; mix together until crumbly. Add pecans. Put on top of casserole.
  3. Bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until set in the middle.

This was the star of my Thanksgiving feast! I roasted 5 sweet potatoes then peeled them easily and used Splenda in place of the white sugar. This was a hit with my sweet potato "haters" too! This will be an annual Thanksgiving dinner recipe from now on. Thank you!

I have used this recipe for years and it is the best! A couple of words of advice -- use fresh sweet potatoes, not canned (there is a huge difference) and I always bake mine rather than boil them -- otherwise they can be too wet. I use my stand mixer for the sweet potato mixture and it works out great. My family's favorite!
