Sweet Potato Cake with Chocolate Pecan Glaze ~ Life is busy. Life is crazy. Life is non-stop and certainly doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon so … I took a moment (or two) and made a cake. Perhaps it was to celebrate all of the good things in life and the heartwarming compassion that has risen out of the muddy Hurricane Harvey waters from not only my fellow Texans but from people all over the globe pitching in to help one another out. Perhaps it was to acknowledge the slightly cooler fall like temperatures creeping in (yay!). Perhaps it was for stress-eating my way through these last few hectic days/weeks. OR … Perhaps a little bit of everything. Either way my kiddos really enjoyed the benefits of this cake by having it after dinner for a few nights this past week and even for breakfast one morning(!). My boys love sweet potatoes but they really had no idea that they could be smashed into a cake let alone eaten in one. This tender cake gets topped with a hearty drizzle of chocolate and candied pecans. Lucky me, I even got to share this cake with the lovely Amanda Tatom over on Studio 512 –– watch the clip below. Grab a fork and go make this Sweet Potato Cake with Chocolate Pecan Glaze and share with friends.
Tender inside — yum!
