I have baked this for Thanksgiving for years. Everyone requests these yams over the marshmallow variety. I'm not sure where I collected the recipe or why it is named.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Yams: Blend all the above. Use retained liquid if desired (blend should be stiff, nor soupy). Put in buttered 9x13 dish.
  3. Topping: Mix the dry ingredients, sprinkle on top of casserole. Drizzle melted butter on top.
  4. Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour.

These were absolutely perfect and the highlight of the Thanksgiving dinner. I used fresh sweet potatoes, but other then that, followed exactly, and even made 1 extra dish of these vegan, but using Earth Balance buttery sticks, Ener-G egg sub, and unsweetened soymilk. Perfect either way you eat them! Thanks...for sharing!

I make a recipe almost exactly like this, except it includes coconut. It is always a hit!
