This recipe was loved by everyone at my potluck although I did omit the coconut to keep it from being to much like a dessert. If I were to make it again I think I would cut the white sugar added to the potatos down to 1/2 or 1/3 of a cup instead because its so sweet! Read More

Great recipe! I found it a bit too sweet with the coconut but without the coconut it is just right. I've served this at several holiday dinners now and everyone loves it. Read More

I loved this recipe! I cooked it for the first time for Thanksgiving this year and I know it will be coming back everyone loved it! The only thing I did differently was double the amount of sweet potatos while leaving the rest of the recipe the same due to comments saying it was too sweet. I think with double the potatos it turned out perfectly. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

This is delicious! I used 4 cups mashed sweet potatoes and it was still really sweet. Omitted the coconut because I am not a big fan of it. I used light brown sugar and self-rising flour. Was still really great! I used some organic coconut oil in place of the margarine for health benefits. I am saving this recipe in my recipe box. Thanks! Read More
