  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • cup packed dark brown sugar

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, divided

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup evaporated milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Combine sweet potatoes and oil in a bowl and toss to coat. Lay on a shallow baking sheet.

  3. Roast until slightly charred, about 45 minutes, turning regularly to prevent burning on the bottom.

  4. While potatoes are roasting, combine 1/3 cup brown sugar and flour in a medium-sized bowl. Add 3 tablespoons butter and cut into the dry ingredients. Stir in pecans until evenly mixed. Set crumble mixture aside.

  5. Combine 1/3 cup brown sugar, remaining 7 tablespoons butter, eggs, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl. Set aside until potatoes are done roasting.

  6. Remove potatoes from oven and reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Transfer sweet potatoes to the brown sugar mixture in the large mixing bowl. Toss until well combined.

  7. Spoon sweet potato mixture into a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish. Top with crumble mixture, distributing evenly to form a crust.

  8. Bake in the hot oven until lightly browned on top, 30 to 40 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
