Description

In the same way that sweet potato makes a luscious pie filling, so it can be a wonderful ingredient in preparing cakes, too. Here the sweet potatoes are first boiled until very tender and then peeled and mashed or pureed until smooth before being beaten into the batter. Beaten egg whites that are folded into the batter keep the cake from being too dense, while grated orange zest and almonds contribute subtle yet distinctive flavors.
