Spiced Sweet Potato Bundt with Brown Sugar Icing
Dude! It's Day #28 of I Like Big Bundts! The Food Librarian brings you 30 Bundts in 30 Days. National Bundt Day is right around the corner. Monday! Do you have a Bundt in the oven? (Hum...that sounds kinda personal.) Let me just say that I hope you make a Bundt to celebrate National Bundt Day!
Today I have the perfect Bundt for Thanksgiving or after Thanksgiving. Every grocery store is going to sell yams and sweet potatoes for pennies, so pick up some extra to make this yummy bundt.
Last year, I made a sweet potato bundt that used grated, raw sweet potatoes. This recipe from Bon Appetit uses cooked, mashed potatoes. Kirbie from Kirbie's Cravings suggested making this Bundt.
You need about 2 medium sized red sweet potatoes to make 2 cups. I bought some “white” and “orange” (often called a yam) sweet potatoes but ATE them instead of saving them for this recipe. I love sweet potatoes! So, this recipe ended up with one orange flesh and one white flesh.

You will need to email me: (1) Link to your blog post (I will use one photo from your post for the round-up) or (2) One JPG photo if you don't have a blog, (3) Your name (that you want published on the blog) and title of your Bundt (4) Mailing address for the button (including your full name for mailing). You have until Monday, November 22nd to send me the information, so feel free to post on actual National Bundt Day (Nov 15th). Please don't rummage through your archives for an old Bundt, you need to bake something fresh for National Bundt Day to qualify for the button (doesn't have to be a new recipe, just something made this month please :) Your family, friends and co-workers will thank you! :)

Spiced Sweet-Potato Cake with Brown Sugar Icing
Notes: I added the vanilla when I added the eggs, not after the flour mixture. As I mentioned, I had one cup each of white and orange flesh color sweet potatoes.
