Thank you for your recipe but anything with sweet potatoes, pumpkins and turnips I run. I am sorry but that there is a taste in it which I can't take. Don't get mad at me. I am sorry.

Anything with sweet potato or pumpkin - a win win situation! I've never had it in a cake - just pies. I'm sure this is excellent and I would love a slice right now.

You know I've had a can that fit in an old crock pot and I used to bake cakes and breads in it. Maybe I will try this in a crock pot.

Thanks thanks! Again!
