Wonderful! Next time I am going to try parsnips - what do you think? I added 1/4 cup flour as they seemed a bit too soft and they turned out heavenly The orange and yam flavor is great They are good cold too. Thanks Dorothy

Nice taste, they come out a little cakey. Mine tasted more like orange than sweet potato. Good with Hawaiian Sweet Bread from a Mix #62198, that is citrusy as well.
