  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 9 or 10-inch round cake pan with cooking spray.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and whisk until butter foams and starts to turn golden brown.  Remove from heat and pour into a large mixing bowl.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove.  Add sweet potato, brown sugar, maple syrup and vanilla to bowl with butter; using a mixer on medium speed, beat together ingredients until nice and creamy.  Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated.  Reduce mixer to low and beat in dry ingredients and yogurt until just combined.  Spread batter into prepared pan.  Bake 25-30 minutes, or until light golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into cake comes out with moist crumbs attached.  Cool on a wire rack.

To make the Marshmallow Whipped Cream, in a large chilled mixing bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat cream until soft peaks form.  Beat in marshmallow cream and vanilla until well incorporated.  Decorate cake with whipped cream.

  1. Looks delish! Is it wrong to want to make the marshmallow whipped cream and it it by itself?

  2. That look delicious. I love the golden colour of the cake. Perfect for autumn.

  3. marshmallow fluff is something that just makes me happy. :)
