SWEET POTATO SPICE CAKE


The entire family will be here for the Thanksgiving holiday! I don't know about you, but I love serving up new recipes that will be delicious and make a beautiful presentation! I try to always test them out before I add something new to the list of their old favorites! This one, made the list! This is a moist sweet potato cake that will make your dinner party a bit more spectacular! 

SWEET POTATO SPICE CAKE
1 box spice cake mix
2 eggs
1 1/2 baked sweet potatoes, skin removed
1 small banana
1 1/4 cups water
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Bake the sweet potatoes for 2 hours in a 350 degree F. oven. Remove and allow to cool. Remove the skins and place in a mixing bowl. Add the banana and mash together. Add the eggs, cake mix, water and oil. Beat with a hand mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake for about 30-45 minutes. Allow to cool  before inverting onto a serving platter. Serve with warm lemon sauce! 


LEMON SAUCE
1/2 cup sugar
1 T. cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup boiling water
 1T. butter
3 T. lemon juice
1/8 t. nutmeg

Blend the sugar and cornstarch together in a small saucepan. Add the cold water and blend. Add the boiling water and cook over low heat until thickened. Stir constantly. When the sauce has thickened, add the butter and lemon juice. Add a touch of nutmeg.
