    BakinBaby's Note:

    This little gem comes from my "Victory Garden Cookbook". No need for icing, you can dust with confectioners' sugar if you like. Nice cake during the fall when sweet potatoes abound.

      I settled on this cake recipe because of the Sweet potatoes (not the bourbon!) & was pleasantly surprised to find that the bourbon flavor added a nice touch to the whole thing! Will definitely be saving this recipe in my yam cookbook ~ OK, so they really are sweet potatoes! Thanks for sharing a very tasty recipe (well at least a tasty cake)!
