Sweet Potato Pound Cake
"This is an excellent cake. I made the recipe as written, and it could not have been more perfect. Great texture and wonderful flavor — slightly milder and less dense than pumpkin. I pureed the sweet potato rather than mashing it, and I only had to bake my cake for about an hour. I am a pastry chef and am very fussy about my cakes, and I will be using this one again," writes reviewer cranberry brulee.
Pumpkin-Cream Cheese Bundt® Cake
"It's not overly sweet and goes great with a cup of coffee. It also seems to taste better the next day, as the spices seem to come out a little more the longer the cake sits," recipe creator Kim says.
