Here’s what you will need

  • 5 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup white Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy Cream
  • 1/4 cup Butter, softened
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose Flour
  • 3/4 Cup packed light brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup chopped Pecan nuts

Let’s get started!

  • To begin, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Then, lightly grease a 9 by 13 inch baking dish using shortening, butter, or cooking spray.
  • Bake 5 sweet potatoes in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes until they begin to soften.


  • You can also boil or cook them in the microwave if you prefer.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, let them cool slightly and then peel them.


  • Once they are all peeled, mash them in a large bowl.


  • Next add together in a big bowl; a quarter teaspoon of salt, a quarter cup of butter, 2 eggs, 1 tea spoon of vanilla extract, half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, half a cup of sugar, and two table spoons of heavy cream – And mix all of these ingredients together well!


  • Once all mixed together, transfer the mixture to the greased baking dish, and smooth the mixture out evenly so that it cover all angles of the dish.


  • Now we will start making the topping.
  • We will start by adding a quarter cup of softened butter into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • We will then add three table spoons of all purpose flour, three quarters of a cup of packed brown sugar and half a cup of chopped walnuts.


  • Mix these all together with a pastry blender, or a fork until its the consistency of coarse meal.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the smoothed out sweet potato mixture, so that it covers the top in an even fashion.
  • Bake the sweet potatoes in the pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes, until the topping is crisp and lightly browned.


  • Gourmet sweet potato classic is the perfect accompaniment to any meal.. Enjoy!
