I started prepping this today for one of our desserts on Thursday. I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and baked it off sans the topping. I’ll finish it off as we sit down to dinner so it’ll be piping hot and perfect with some homemade vanilla bean ice cream!
I love this dish. I eat it for dessert. With ice cream. It is fabulous. I promise.

Sweet Potato Souffle with Brown Sugar Pecan Crust
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup flour

- 1 cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs, well beaten
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375°. Butter a medium-sized baking dish. You can also use individual ramekins.
For the crust: Combine brown sugar, flour, nuts and butter in mixing bowl. Set aside.
Combine sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs, and butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat thoroughly with a hand mixer for about 3-4 minutes to increase…

Elaine…it is so good. I lick the spoon, beaters, bowl, all of it!! 😜
This sounds delicious Patty! I am sure the family and friends are going to love it :).
I’ve never used sweet potato to make a dessert, though I dont see why not! And with ice cream yum! I love your blog redesign Patty!
Want to know a secret? I accidentally changed my blog design and forgot the name of my old one and then spent three hours trying to figure out a new one. 😛
Oh no, that’s too funny. But I’ll tell you a secret to, I’ve accidentally changed my blog theme once also! I hope you like the new one after your accident 😛
Haha, you too! Phew, I feel much better now! 😄
Yeah. Also I’ve been debating on using the theme I’m using or the one you’re using!
Let’s be blog twins!!
At least we know we are blog sisters! 🙂
Yes! Absolutely! 😃
(they are done by the same designer)
Oh no Patty, I’ve changed my blog design AGAIN. But its also by the same designer so we are still blog sisters 🙂
Ahh, you’re so funny! Was it an accident or on purpose this time?? 😛
It was on purpose, but I’m so glad that we are still blog sisters 🙂
