Happy Holidays & Sweet Potato Pound Cake
Happy Holidays friends! I wanted to share one final recipe with you before we head out to finish up our last minute shopping. This sweet potato pound cake is one of my favorites! It’s always a hit with my family and smells delicious while baking in the oven.
The best part is you can use either leftover sweet potatoes, or canned yams. Either way you have a yummy tasting cake!
I hope you all enjoy this as much as we do! We are off to tackle the holidays crowds. Will see you in a few days!
