Probably the last in the “cake mixes” series.
1 package yellow cake mix (2 layer size)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp ground cinnamon (I used 2 tsp)
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (1 used 1/2 tsp)
1 can (18oz) vacuum-packed sweet potatoes or 2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed ( 1 3/4 cups)
Mix all above ingredients in a large bowl, pour into a greased 9″x13″ baking dish and bake at 350F 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
Browned butter icing:
1/3 cup butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp milk
Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat until just light brown. Watch carefully because butter can brown then burn quickly. Remove saucepan from heat.
Stir in powdered sugar, vanilla and 1 tbsp milk. Stir.
Continue adding small amounts of milk until smooth and spreadable. Immediately spread over cake.
