Sweet Potato Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Preheat your oven 350°F. Coat a baking pan with cooking spray or butter. (Use a 13×9 pan or a round springform pan.) If using the round springform pan you might choose to use parchment paper on the sides of the pan.
Combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium mixing bowl. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until they are light and frothy. Beat in the oil. Add the flour mixture in two additions, until just incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Stir in the grated sweet potato.
Pour the sweet potato cake batter into the pan and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes; check for doneness.
Remove your sweet potato cake from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
If you are using a springform pan,remove sides and slice a bit from the top of the cake with a serrated knife to create a flat surface. Invert the cake onto a wire rack or serving plate. Remove bottom of springform pan.
If you are using the 13" x 9" pan, leave the sweet potato cake in the pan to cool.
You can cover the cake and refrigerate it until ready to frost...a day or two if you choose.
Frosting Directions: Whip together the butter and cream cheese. Add the vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar and whisk well. Frost the cake and refrigerate.
Remove the frosted cake from the refrigerator about 10-15 minutes prior to serving.The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook: More than 100 ways to enjoy one of the world's healthiest foods
