Does anyone have a recipe for an old fashioned sweet potato cake with a cream cheese frosting that is not made from a box cake mix? Thanks for your help.

I don't have a recipe but any pumpkin recipe can substitute sweet potatoes. There are thousands of pumpkin cake and bread recipes out there. Good luck.
3 cups self rising flour
2 t. vanilla
3/4 cup coconut
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups cooking oil
1 small can crushed pineapple, undrained
2 cups grated, raw sweet potatoes
Mix oil and sugar and beat in eggs. Add flour, vanilla, pineapple, coconut and sweet potatoes. Mix well and bake in 3 layers at 350° for 30 minutes.
1 1/4 sticks (3/4 cup) margarine
1 1/4 cups sugar
4 egg yolks
1 t. vanilla
1 1/4 cups coconut
1 1/4 cups evaporated milk
Cook margarine, sugar, egg yolks and milk in a double boiler, about 15 minutes, until thick. Remove from heat, add coconut and vanilla. Use to frost cake.
I found this recipe (yellowed because of age) with a lot of clippings from an old recipe book I bought at an estate sale:
1 cup shortening
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 pound box light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sweet potatoes (baked and mashed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream shortening & sugar, add eggs and sweet potato. Sift flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add to mixture. Add milk and vanilla. Bake 350 oven for 30 minutes in 2 greased and floured layer pans. Allow to cool before icing.
1 box confectioners sugar, sifted
4 oz. block cream cheese
3 1/2 tablespoons milk
1 stick butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Place sugar in large bowl. Add butter, cream cheese, pecans, vanilla & milk. Beat until creamy. Sprinkle chopped pecans over top of cake after icing.
