Ezekiel 16:19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.
Sweet potatoes are always a big hit around my house. My seven-year old could eat his weight in sweet potatoes, which makes me very happy because sweet potatoes are good for the body and soul.
A lot of people eat sweet potato casserole as a side dish, however, this is sweet sweet potato casserole that I often use as a dessert. The sugar amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste, so feel free to play with it.
Okay! Ready, set, go!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1 29 oz southern yams, aka, sweet potatoes
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup real sweet cream butter
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Now you are ready to make the topping. This is the best part! Lance likes the topping so much that I made him some cookies just like the topping so he wouldn’t just eat the top of the casserole! LOL
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup quick oats
4 tablespoons real sweet cream butter
1/4 cup self rising flour
1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional, but I suggest using them if you like pecans and have some on hand. It makes it taste so much better. The casserole pictured here does not have the pecans due to the fact that I didn’t have any in my cabinet, shame on me! (Note to self, put pecans on grocery list!)
