I follow a blog called "Chickens in the Road." I admire this gal soooo very much. Today she posted a blog containing a recipe for a spiced sweet potato nut cake. As much as I abhor sweet potatoes, this cake sounds OK and I just may try it!
Here's a link to it for all you lovers of the orange tuber:
May I also recommend her blog? She is so "earthy" and "real!" I have read every one of her category blogs for quite a long time now. There are cooking, house & garden, country living, barn, forums, and recipe sections. Some of the barn blogs are explicit so be forewarned. This about living the country old ways - to the hilt.
The sweet potato was officially designated the North Carolina State Vegetable by the General Assembly of 1995.
The sweet potato is high in vitamins A and C and low in fat and was grown in North Carolina before the European colonization of North America.
