Sweet Potato Cake

I can’t believe that sweet potatoes are now one of my favorite food.

When I was a child, sweet potatoes are the one I used to avoid. The reason was the sweetness from the sweet potatoes itself  was too weird for me.

But today, the natural sweetness is ideal for baking cakes, allowing me to reduce the amount I need to put on my cake batter. Also flavor of it is unique and it makes my tummy full faster than other snacks.

I already introduced some of the recipe that uses sweet potato for baking, but this is also the one you shouldn’t miss it! 😀
