  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat white sugar and 1 cup softened butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add sweet potato, flour, pecans, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt, stirring well after each addition, until batter is smooth. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.
  4. Whisk confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons melted butter together in a bowl; add enough milk to make a thin glaze. Spread glaze over brownies while still hot. Cool and slice brownies.

These were superb! As moist as any 'typical brownie'. I stuck by the recipe for the brownies, however...I added brown sugar to the glaze to make it caramel. By placing butter, dark brown sugar, ...

This sweet potato brownie recipe now replaces my old standby from this site. The pecans take it to another level and it came out very moist and decadent. Not cakey at all. I live at elevatio...

I highly recommend this one. It's so moist and flavorful. I made it and it was all gone in a day. I'll make it again for our family reunion this weekend and I expect grand reviews even there,...

This is super easy to make and it is delicious! We added more pecans (because we love them) and didn't use the glaze (we thought it was perfect without it). I may try more sweet potato next time...

Great recipes! I added crushed walnuts because I didn't have pecans!

Really rich and tasty! Very sweet. My family loved them, except for the few who really don't care for sweet potatoes.
