  • Using colander, drain sweet potatoes well.
  • In a bowl, mash potatoes until smooth.
  • In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger and salt.
  • In large bowl, with electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugars 2 minutes, until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in buttermilk, vanilla and mashed potatoes.
  • With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture, beat on medium speed until well blended. Spoon batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Bake 60 to 65 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
