Sweet Potato Spice Cake

Maple syrup, brown sugar and sweet potatoes give this dessert just the right amount of sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups House-Autry Buttermilk Biscuit Mix
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (29-ounces) sweet potatoes, drained
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 container (12-ounces) ready-to-spread whipped cream cheese frosting
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup (Optional) pecans, toasted and chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sweet potatoes; mix well. Gradually add House-Autry Buttermilk Biscuit mix and spices until combined. Add milk and vanilla; mix well. Divide batter evenly between two lightly greased and floured 9-inch round pans. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool layers before frosting.

For frosting: Stir maple syrup into prepared frosting. Place one of the cake layers upside-down onto a plate. Spread half of the frosting on top. Place other cake layer upside-down onto the first layer, so that the top of cake is flat. Spread with remaining frosting. Optional: Garnish with toasted nuts.
