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. 
For this recipe please visit Southern Living. Don't forget to stop by and visit my Cake Slice friends to see what they baked up this month.

Darling little Bundts and so pretty in rows. Did you find that you just had to pop another on your plate? It would be tempting .

Yes! One was not enough! I had to force myself to walk away after a couple or three, I think it was!

These are really cute. I like sweet potatoes but have never used them to bake cakes. But they look so good maybe it is time for me to try!
