There are many versions of this Southern dish, but this is one of the very best. It was my mother’s recipe. I have made it numerous times over the years for family, co-workers and other functions. I’ve always had an empty dish and numerous requests for the recipe. Enjoy!


3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/3 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon

1/3 stick butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup fl our
1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all fi lling ingredients together until blended. Pour into a 9” x 13” baking dish. Mix topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over potato mixture. Bake uncovered approximately 35 to 40 minutes.


-You can use two 29 oz. cans of yams rather then boiled or baked sweet potatoes. Cuts down on preparation time and is just as delicious.sweet-potato-souffle
