I like to bring one of these glazed sweet potato bundt cakes as a special hostess give during the holiday season. The icing looks pretty draping down the sides and it remains glossy even after it dries. —Catherine Wilkinson, Dewey, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons plus 1 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 1/3 cup finely crushed gingersnap cookies (about 6 cookies)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cans (15-3/4 ounces each) sweet potatoes, drained and pureed
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Grease a 10-in. tube pan with 2 teaspoons butter and coat with crushed cookies; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and remaining butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in sweet potatoes. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, salt and cloves; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  3. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. For glaze, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Pour over top of cake, allowing glaze to drape over sides. Yield: 12 servings.
