Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake

This recipe was given to my mother in 1940. Mother had lost all of her recipes, collected during 7 years of marriage, in a house fire, so her friends gave her a recipe party. Each recipe was handwritten, and most merely listed the ingredients with no mention of how to put them together. Among them is this cake, which is one of our family's favorites. -Sally Green, Mobile, Alabama
