This recipe is a hand-me-down from my mother. My dad used to plant a lot of sweet potatoes, so Mother became quite creative in preparing them. It's our annual holiday dish with turkey and trimmings, but when I have a yen for something sweet, I reach into my file for this recipe. -Aline Fazzio, Houman, Louisiana


  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice
  • 3 cups shredded uncooked sweet potatoes


  1. In a bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, milk and butter. Combine the flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice; stir into the egg mixture with sweet potatoes.
  2. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
