This is my first sweet potato cake ever!! Actually, few weeks ago I was thinking to make a cake with sweet potato as the ingredient. I found myself attracted to sweet potato :), all this time the only food I made of sweet potato is biji salak and sweet potato balls (trans: bola ubi).

So, yesterday morning I asked Mr. Google for any cake recipe made of sweet potato, and his answer is this. The differences from the original recipe are I used more sweet potato and I skipped the honey (unfortunately, I have no honey available in my kitchen drawer), and the cake issss......SCRUMPTIOUS!! I do really like it :). What about my hubby? Oughh....this time I can't ask his opinion cos he is ill and lost his appetite.....:(.

However, this cake is highly recommended to try!! ;)
