  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Mash sweet potatoes, 1/3 cup butter, and white sugar together in a bowl. Beat milk, eggs, and vanilla extract into sweet potato mixture using an electric mixer until smooth; pour 1/2 the mixture into a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  • Mix brown sugar, coconut, pecans, and flour together in a bowl; stir in 3 tablespoons butter until evenly coated. Sprinkle 1/2 the topping over sweet potato mixture. Pour remaining sweet potato mixture over topping and sprinkle with remaining topping.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and topping is lightly browned, about 1 hour.

made this for Christmas dinner. It was super easy to make and everyone loved it but you must love coconut. I thought it was a little too sweet and when I make it again I will omit the white sugar and see if that helps. I might also add extra pecans because we loved the crunchiness! Read More
