Vegan Sweet Potato Cake
This sweet potato cake smells like autumn thanks to cinnamon and cloves, and just happens to be vegan. There aren't any hard-to-find ingredients here, just sweet potato, sugar, flour, oil, and spices. The secret to the depth of flavor might be the coffee, but the end result does not taste like a coffee-flavored cake.
Cooled espresso can be used instead of cooled coffee. Or, to make this cake appealing to everyone, you can use decaf coffee.
You can use pumpkin puree instead of sweet potato for a pumpkin version of this cake. Similarly, you can use 2 to 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon and cloves. This would also be great with a vegan cream cheese frosting!
