- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg

Directions See How It's Made
- To cook the sweet potatoes, I bake them completely and then let them cool. This usually takes about an hour at 350 degrees.
- After they are cool enough to touch, I cut open the sweet potatoes and scoop out the insides. I scoop them right into the bowl for my mixer.
- Add the butter, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, vanilla, and evaporated milk and mix together.
- Cook in a 13 x 9 pan at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
- For the topping I put the chopped pecans, cornflakes, brown sugar, and melted butter in a gallon size baggie. I close the baggie and mix the ingredients together. (This also crushes the cornflakes at the same time.).
- Pour the topping over the sweet potato mixture and bake at 400 degrees until bubbly. This usually takes 15-20 minutes.
