Mechthild's Sweet Potatoes
(Eastern Michigan University)
Story behind this recipe
This is a classic American Thanksgiving kind of dish, but I got it from a German woman in Norway!
3 cups mashed sweet potatoes, drained
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
2/3 cup cream
1 tsp vanilla
6 tbsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup crushed cornflakes
Blend and bake the main ingredients in a greased casserole at 350 F for about 15 min.
Meanwhile melt the 6 tbsp butter with the brown sugar and blend in a saucepan.
Remove saucepan from stove, and add the pecans and crushed cornflakes.
Add this to the casserole as a topping, and bake for a further 15 min.
