Spiced Sweet Potato Pudding Recipe

One of my favorite fall desserts, this treat's rich flavors are well suited to the chillier months. I like to serve it over a slice of pound cake or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 3 hours YIELD:7 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (15-3/4 ounces each) sweet potatoes, drained and mashed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 2/3 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • Pound cake, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the first eight ingredients until well-blended. Pour into a greased 3-qt. slow cooker. Sprinkle with pecans. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until a thermometer reads 160°. Serve with pound cake if desired. Yield: 7 servings.
