Sweet Potatoes

Here’s my recipe for sweet potato casserole. It’s from my aunt, but I think it’s a fairly common recipe.



5 or 6 large sweet potatoes (2- 29 oz cans)

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 stick or butter or margarine  -softened (can use 3/4 stick)

1 tsp. salt

1 ts.p cinnamon



1 cup pecans

1 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup self-rising flour (substitute 1/3 cup all purpose + 1/2 tsp baking powder + pinch of salt)

1 stick melted butter or margarine



Mash potatoes; add to remaining ingredients. Beat until smooth. Pour into 9″x12″ pan. For topping, mix brown sugar and flour; mix in butter. Spread on top of sweet potato mixture; sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes.

  1. I’ll be making sweet potato casserole too. I don’t make it often, but I usually use my MIL’s recipe. I think it’s very similar too. It looks yummy.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, it sounds lovely!
