This is a light cake with a fine texture. Sweet potatoes add a buttery richness to the mix. Easy to make.
Moist everyday cake,good way to use up excess sweet potato.Next time I will add orange juice and zest straight into cake mix and skip the icing,as cake itself was sweet enough for my taste! - 26 Apr 2016
This is one of the best pound cakes I've ever tasted or made. Used 2 1/2 cups of mashed canned sweet potatoes (1 40oz can) and sweetened it with a little brown sugar, extra cinnamon and nutmeg. Used a pineapple glaze instead of orange. A delicious soft, moist masterpiece. Will make again and again! - 05 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is an excellent cake. I made the recipe as written & it could not have been more perfect. Great texture and wonderful flavor (slightly milder & less dense than pumpkin). I pureed the sweet potato rather than mashing it, and I only had to bake my cake for about an hour. I am a pastry chef & am very fussy about my cakes, and I will be using this one again. Great cake! - 08 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
