Sweet Potato Pound Cake with Marshmallow Frosting
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling
This was a huge hit at my Thanksgiving gathering. Everyone really liked cake plain, but the frosting was so good! Frosting takes the cake to the next level. I will be making this again for sure. There wasn't any leftover.
I make this EVERY Thanksgiving and Christmas--we absolutely LOVE it. It there are any leftovers, I cute slices into sticks, dry in the oven and serve a biscotti...GREAT!!
I was a bit hesitant to try a pound cake with sweet potatoes in it, but it was delicious! Very moist. The cake was still too warm when I put the frosting on so it pretty much slid off down the sides. I was serving it at a church fellowship meal, so I wanted to frost it instead of putting a dollop on the slices. Next time I'll wait until it's all cooled down to put the frosting on because the frosting is delicious.
I had some mashed sweet potatos in the freezer that needed to be used and I chose this recipe. It was very moist indeed and not overly sweet. I used freshly grated nutmeg so the nutmeg flavor was pronounced and delicious. I elected not to use a frosting as it really doesn't need it.
