I just made this up last night. I had had some dehydrated sweet potato skins I was carting around the counrty and FINALLY decided I had time to grind them all in my coffee grinder. I think all the labor made the bread taste better. I'm sure you can purchase sweet potato flour somewhere, but if not...Dry 'em out, grind 'em up! Enjoy. PS this is also really healthy. Loaded with vitamin A!

This is my favorite cake. I take it to all parties and gatherings. I have done several variations... adding cherries and powdered sugar to the top. Putting it in a bunt cake pan and decorating the hole in the middle. I have also used cherry filling instead of the pineapple. That is yummy too. This is probably the easiest cake to make that you will ever try in your life!!!
This makes a wonderful (diet) dessert. Don't be scared off by the diet word as all those other folks not on a diet loved it too.
