Sweet Potato Cake

This sweet potato is a snap to prepare with a cake mix and mashed sweet potatoes. Drain and mash canned sweet potatoes to make this cake even easier.


  • 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Canola oil, corn oil, or safflower oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package (18.25 ounces) butter pecan cake mix with pudding in the mix
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt cake pan. Heat oven to 325°.

In a large mixing bowl with electric mixer, beat together the sweet potatoes, milk, oil, eggs, and spices. Slowly beat in the cake mix. Beat on high for about 2 minutes. Beat in nuts. Spoon the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until the cake springs back when lightly touched with a finger.

Cool for 10 minutes on a rack. Invert onto a cake plate to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar or make a Caramel Glaze and spoon over the cooled cake.
