    NC Barbie's Note:

    You have to try this recipe! It's a huge hit everywhere I bring it. It's very simple and a great holiday recipe. I found it in the local newspaper here and ever since I made it I have had people begging me to make it again and for the recipe. It makes two 9x13 pans so it's great for big get togethers. Enjoy!

      Yum! I altered this a bit. I used a full box of spice cake mix and followed the directions on the box but omitted the oil. Then I added 1/2 tsp of orange zest, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. I also used three 6 ounce jars of sweet potato baby food. Wonderful and moist. Made a large bundt cake. I drizzled a cream cheese frost on top. Very pretty!

      This cake is perfect for Thanksgiving, not too sweet and very moist.

      Great Recipe!! Tried it once at the local Fire Department and fell in love! It's the best thing next to a sweet potato pie!! But no crust! Sweet but not to rich.. The guys at the station were licking their plates when they were done!
