    Sassy Red Chef's Note:

    I discovered one day as I ran out of carrots, that I needed a substitute for my cake, and I stumbled upon sweet potatoes. Since they cook so easy, mashed up and are so moist, why not mix up in a cake batter. I also added a twist with a touch of nutmeg that goes a long way, and the two make a great combo. Instead of cream cheese icing, I decideing to make a whipped cream topping with a bit of nutmeg. Hope you enjoy

      Since this apparently was at one time a carrot cake, I just had to add a handful of golden raisins, & those, in combo with the sweet potatoes, made for a wonderfully delicious dessert! I made the nutmeg cream topping, but the first two slices that I had were just plain, one cooled down from just-baked, & the other one at room temperature! My other half, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoyed the spiced cream on top! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
