What to do with all your leftover sweet potatoes?? This was the question I was pondering over. Thankfully the Secret Recipe Club came to the rescue and introduced me to the adorable blog Inside BruCrew Life.
When it came time to pick the recipe I wanted to make from the Secret Recipe Club (Inside BruCrew Life) and happened upon a sweet potato recipe. I was all over it! I had tons of sweet potatoes leftover from T-day and needed a delicious non-overly-sweet recipe.
My girls (unlike the lovely Jocelyn of BruCrew) love, no adore sweet potatoes! My Thanksgiving sweet potatoes are sweet...more like dessert. Definitely not an everyday item.
Jocelyn's crumb cake was perfect, my girls gobbled it up! I brought it to a friends birthday party and it was gone within minutes!
This recipe will be a keeper in my household....Thanks Jocelyn!
Sweet Potato Crumb Cake
Recipe Adapted by Inside BruCrew Life
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sweet potato, boiled and mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 cup marshmallow Fluff (I didn't have fluff and used miniature marshmallows)
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tb melted butter
1 Tb flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all topping ingredients, mix well and set aside.
Over low heat melt butter in a small skillet until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes and pour into a medium bowl. Add brown sugar, mashed sweet potato, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, stir until well incorporated. Beat eggs in (separately) making sure to mix well after each addition.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt, adding the 1/2 cup oatmeal after the sifted ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients (flour mixture) into the wet ingredients, mixing well.
In a greased 9 X 13 baking pan, evenly spread 1/2 the batter over the bottom. Smear the marshmallows over the batter, and spread the other 1/2 of the batter over the marshmallows. Sprinkle the oatmeal crumble and bake for about 25 minutes. Let cool before serving.
