Sweet Potato Cake Recipe

After tasting this cake at my church’s homecoming, I became a huge fan – and so did my family. This cake has been a huge hit when I first started making it for my church’s bake sales and thankfully now, other people will be able to make it too so I can take a breather now and then! My family has finally stopped asking me so much to make this cake so rather than having to bake one every other day, I can now do it once a week and still keep our family and church happy.

You can also see my other recipes on this site especially my world famous 5 Flavor Pound Cake that will make you say a wonderful prayer for it’s creamy goodness! Next up, I’ll be sharing some of my famous casserole dishes along with so simple Crock Pot dishes you can make. I know how time just slips away from so many of us, so these dishes are quick and easy to make but tastes like you spent all day slaving away.

Cake ingredients:

1 1⁄2 cup oil 1 1⁄4 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar 1 tsp. cinnamon
1⁄4 cup water 1 tsp. nutmeg
