Thank you so much for your support comments and feedback. I do thank God for all my talents because If it was not for him, I could do nothing. creativeone59

      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!
