    BlueBonnet in Texas's Note:

    I can't remember where this recipe came from but I have been making it for years. I just love it. I have also tried baking this in a metal coffee can. Adding walnuts to this is also an option but I usually leave then out. It makes two (large) loaves.

      wonderful pound cake that welcomed guests for our thanksgiving weekend! my husband requested another, but suggested an icing with the next. I used a bundt pan so it took a little longer.

      I deliver meals on wheels to housebound senior citizens. A southern gentleman on the route asked if I'd make him sweet potato cake. That was totally foreign food to me, but thanks to this recipe, I sure did make an old man happy. Just as he remembered and it certainly made his day. I made two loaves and kept one. Now we know why sweet potato cake is one of his favorites--very tasty indeed. Thanks, BlueBonnet, for making us all happy.
