Wow! What a yummy cake. I was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover sweet potato puree and this was a perfect way to use it up. I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon to the batter and a 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon to the topping and it had a great spice flavor. This would be so good to make during the fall. I loved how moist the cake was and I just loved the texture of the topping. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
