There's no chocolate so I suppose they are more like blondies. From Deep South Parties (Or How to Survive the Southern Cocktail Hour Without a Box of French Onion Soup Mix, a Block of Processed Cheese, or a Cocktail Weenie) by Robert St. John

This is good but more cakey than I hoped (I was hoping for a blondie consistency). I didn't make the glaze, it was sweet enough. So next time I might add the cinnamon and maple into the cake. The toasted pecans are lovely with the light sweet potato flavor. I used self-rising flour because there was no baking powder in the recipe and I used half brown sugar.
