The only problem with this recipe was that when anyone tried it, they wanted to eat it all... It was the hit of thanksgiving dinner. There were so many mmmmmmmmmssssssss.. we couldn't carry on a conversation... it was easy to make.. I used 3 cans of yams and the sauce covered it. only used the juice from one can. The kids were upset because there weren't any marshmellos so i put a few on one end for them lol

I have the same recipe and it calls for a 40. oz. can. My recipe also uses 1/4 cup for the butter and for the flour and you bake it at 350 for 35-45 minutes or until bubbly. Thanks for posting!
