Sweet Potato Souffle


Thanksgiving13Sweet Potato Souffle

This recipe is wonderful.  We love it.  However, please note:  I always double the sweet potato mixture as written below to fill an 11×9-inch pan but I do NOT double the topping mixture as written below.   By not doubling the topping, it is perfect for the doubled sweet potato mixture.

Sweet potato mixture:

  • 1 large can of yams, drained and mashed
  • 1 5-oz can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix well and pour into casserole dish.  Sprinkle with topping and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serves 6.

Topping: (This topping is too much for the recipe as written above.  I always double the above written recipe and then use this amount of topping:)

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
