Rum-Glazed Sweet Potato cakes

The Cake Slice Bakers have started a new baking season with "The Southern Cake Book" by Southern Living. This book looks very promising with its mouth watering photos with every recipe. 

This months choices were very hard to decide from. I decide on a recipe that I wasn't familiar with. I chose Rum-Glazed Sweet Potato Cakes. The recipe consisted of roasting sweet potatoes, mixing the strained potatoes into the batter. Golden raisins soaked in rum were also an addition to the recipe. A butter-rum glaze and chopped pecans finished off these tender moist mini cakes.

This recipe definitely was the right choice to kick off the fall baking season. These mini bundt cakes were super moist, and delivered the perfect balance of sweet potato, spices and rum, without over powering each other.
