PSA: The best way to eat your vegetables is in a cake.

(The vegetables totally cancel out the sugar in the cake. It’s a thing.)

Now, believe it or not, there was a time in my life when I had zero interest in sweet potatoes.

You see, I have a problem with things, like food, masquerading as other things. Sweet potato fries and mashed sweet potatoes are fine dishes on their own, but they can’t be a replacement for the original. Don’t tell me you have the mashed potato dish covered and then show up with a bowl of mashed sweet potatoes.

It’s just not the same and you will crush my hopes and dreams. (But really though, because I’ve been known to judge the quality of a restaurant based on their mashed potato recipe.)

It’s just like when people try to convince you that you’re eating mac and cheese when it’s actually shredded cauliflower and cheese.

Just no.

Tell me the truth, and I’ll probably love the dish, because I love cauliflower, but if you prep me for mac and cheese and then skip the mac?

Fool me once, shame one me. Fool me twice, I’m not bringing cake for dessert.

Like in this cake.

Because sweet potato bundt cake is delish.

Since pureed sweet potatoes have a similar consistency to pureed pumpkin, sweet potatoes work great in cakes, cookies, and even pie. I’ve never had sweet potato pie, but I do love me a good pumpkin pie so I’m betting I’d love sweet potato pie.

Ingredients

    Sweet Potato Bundt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups sweet potato puree* (or mashed--I mashed mine, which is why you can sweet potato pieces in the cake, but if you want a smooth cake, puree the potatoes)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground all spice
  • Brown Sugar Glaze
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp cream
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bundt pan well.
  2. In a large bowl with a mixer, mix vegetable oil, applesauce, sour cream, and pureed sweet potatoes* together.
  3. Once combined, add in brown sugar and granulated sugar and cream until combined.
  4. Add in the eggs, 1 at a time. Add in vanilla extract. Set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice.
  6. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Once combined, pour batter into the bundt pan, making sure it is evenly distributed.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes (mine was 50 minutes exactly), or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  8. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before turning it out of the pan.
  9. Brown Sugar Glaze
  10. While the cake is cooling, melt butter and brown sugar together in a saucepan over med-low heat. Once melted, add in vanilla extract and heavy cream.
  11. Once combined, pull off the heat and whisk in powdered sugar. Once combined, allow to sit for 8-10 minutes so the glaze can thicken.
  12. Pour glaze over the cake, giving it 5-10 minutes to harden.
  13. Enjoy!

Notes

*For the sweet potato puree, I used two med-large sweet potatoes for 1 1/2 cups of puree. Peel the potatoes and slice them into 2" pieces. Boil them for about 20 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain them, allow them to cool about 5 minutes, then mash them with a fork or puree them in a food processor.

    Bundt cakes are delicious! Somehow a slice from a bundt pan is so much better than a regular cake pan. And I love sweet potatoes so much! That glaze and cake combo is amazing. PS These photos look just like Sally’s Baking Addiction. You nailed ’em <3

    This looks amazing Michelle! Incredible pictures too – I can almost smell it and taste it! Definitely on my to make list 🙂 & this reminds me of the My Big Fat Greek Wedding scene when the mom said “there’s a hole in this cake!” 😛

    Michelle I made this and it was wonderful but my glaze wasn’t clear like yours and I made it the exact way its written in your recipe directions. Any clue as to why?
