This Vegan Sweet Potato Cake is packed with flavor and perfect for any celebration. Added bonus – it’s one of the easiest layer cakes you’ll ever make!
The Emotional Baker is not a Pie Maker. (& a rolling pin is her biggest enemy.)
Well, these bad boys had some serious flaws.
Take exhibit c for example – Maple Pecan Pie. This was my second time making this – and I really thought I mastered it. The first time I turned the caramel sauce into candy!
That didn’t stop me from trying the recipe again though. The second time I tried to be really patient. Everything was going like it should and I really thought I had a winner. But the pie had a secret. When I sliced into it, it was a gooey, liquidy mess – although still delicious!
Sure I’ve improved over the years because I’m determined to make a perfect pie, but that day hasn’t happened, yet.
Although I still plan on making a not so perfect pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, I think this Sweet Potato Cake would be a perfect treat to change things up a bit. & believe me it is easy! This is not your traditional layer cake.
You bake this cake in a square dish and then cut it so you make a four layer rectangle cake.
It’s not the prettiest cake, but when it’s sliced no one will know you took a shortcut! I opted to leave the edges bare – like a naked cake, but you could frost the whole thing if you want.
What desserts will you have this Thanksgiving?
