I found a terrific and simple recipe for sweet potato cake on the label for Bruce's Sweet Potato Pie Filling. (I think the recipe would work fine with pumpkin pie filling as well). I was a little skeptical because you don't add any cooking oil or butter, but the cake came out moist and delicious.

Ingredients

Directions

Grease a bundt pan, then sprinkle the sugar and nuts around the bottom of the pan. Beat the pie filling, cake mix and eggs together until smooth. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes. (The recipe said 65 minutes, but mine tested done earlier).

This cake unmolded beautifully from the pan. The pieces also freeze well in ziplock bags. They make great lunch treats.

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.

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 eggs
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.

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.
