  • Mix flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves together in a large bowl.

  • Beat sugar and sweet potatoes in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, oil, and orange juice; beat until well combined.

  • Pour flour mixture into potato mixture and beat for 4 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl twice. Pour batter into prepared sheet cake pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 60 to 90 minutes.

Tips

Cook's Note:

This cake is sweet enough not to ice, but is delicious with cream cheese icing. I've added crumbled bacon to this recipe, too, for a funky bacony twist.
