Sweet Potato & Sugared Pecan Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by grandma2969

These muffins are moist and just sweet enough...To cook the sweet potatoes for the batter, bake them in a preheated 400* oven..about 45-55 minutes or microwave them on high for 10-12 minutes or until tender..remove the skin and mash..

Delicious! I especially like this recipe since it fills a 12 cup muffin tin to the top thus giving a nice sized muffin. Only changes I made was light brown sugar since I was out of the dark. Also, no pecans so I topped the muffins with Florida Crystals(a natural sugar purchased at Walmart) that I use on most all my muffin recipes. It's great making a recipe the first time & loving it-thanks!
