  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch casserole dish.
  2. Mix sweet potatoes, white sugar, 1/2 cup butter, milk, eggs, salt, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a bowl until smooth; spread into the prepared casserole dish.
  3. Stir brown sugar, pecans, and 1/3 cup butter together in a bowl. Mix flour into pecan mixture using your hands until evenly coated and crumbly; sprinkle over sweet potato mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and praline topping is lightly browned, about 40 minutes. Cool slightly before serving, at least 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Use a hand mixer for the sweet potato mixture for a smoother result. Just use a wooden spoon if you prefer a more rustic casserole with chunks of sweet potatoes.

It was a winner. I made exactly as the recipe stated. Everyone enjoyed it. The next time I make it I am going to reduce sugar to 1/2 cup. It was too sweet. That could be because the canned pota...

The hit of the party... Everyone loved it!

This a winner for me! I usually make casserole with pecan in the mixture of potatoes and top with marshmallows. The only change I made was add 1/2 cup of whipping cream to potato mixture. Make...
