sweet potato pudding People called this two different things because of the texture.  It is sort of like a bread and sort of like a pudding.  It is delicious.   With it's moisture it can be a pudding and with the firmness, a bread.  Together with the sweet spiciness, many use it as a dessert.  Make it yourself to see how you like it!

What you will need:

1 stick of light butter

2 large eggs

1 1/4 cup of light brown sugar

2 cups of well mashed sweet potatoes

3/4 ups of self-rising flour

1/3 Pet or Carnation evaporated milk

1 tblspn of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/3 tspn of ground allspice

1/3 tspn of ground nutmeg

1 cup of chopped pecans

1 cup of raisins

brown sugar measuring cup sweet potato raisins butter

1.)  Getting the potatoes ready:

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into chunks and boil until soft but still firm, not mush.  Rinse off in cold water and add to medium bowl.  With potato masher, mash potatoes into the same consistency as you would white potatoes.

2.)  The Mixture:

In a larger bowl, cream the butter with the brown sugar.  Beat in the eggs.  Now add in the sweet potatoes, flour, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.  Now add the raisins and optional pecans.

3.)  Cooking:

Spread into the cooking pan sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray for Pastries.  Bake for an hour or until browned and firm. Let cool and cut into desired squares.  Enjoy

mmm....mmm...time for pie

*Serving suggestions:

Top with Light No Sugar Added Ice Cream or Cool whip

Also caramel or chocolate sauce
