I always make my own changes to a recipe like adding a little more cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. I also like a thick topping but the rest is the same. Read More

Although highly rated by others, I cut the sugar by a third and still found it so sweet as to be inedible. The flavour of the sweet potatoes is completely overpowered. A half cup of brown sugar in the topping would be more than sufficient and omit the white sugar added to the sweet potato mixture. Read More

This was delicious! My brother-in-law said he doesn't like the sweet potatoes with marshmallows so I was on the hunt for a recipe without them. I got rave reviews! I didn't use all of the topping but saved the left overs for another round! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! Read More
