Sweet Potato Brownies

I have had this recipe saved in my Allrecipes.com recipe box for as long as I can remember, and it finally took the fact that I had two little sweet potatoes that were in dire need of being used up for me to finally make it.

Don’t make the same mistake I did!!

These are sooo good.  The main flavor really isn’t even the sweet potato (not that I would have minded since I love sweet potatoes) but the butterscotch flavor from the brown sugar and butter. And the glaze just puts them over the top.  Sinfully sweet!

Jay wrinkled up his nose at the idea of sweet potato brownies.  He has now learned the error of his ways 😉  He thought they were delicious too.

And I think you’ll agree if you give them a try!  Until next time, Happy Cooking 🙂

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.  Beat in the eggs one at a time.  Stir in vanilla.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir into the batter just until blended.  Fold in the sweet potatoes.  Spread the batter evenly in the baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
