Lovely, moist, and chocolaty, the sweet potato and spices hint of fall and make this a sure crowd-pleaser that’s perfect for potlucks or buffets. This is an adaptation of Mary Evans’s recipe from her book Vegetable Creations. She is a highly skilled teacher, a cooking school operator (she gave me my first chance at teaching 25 years back), a gifted author of multiple books, and a great baker as well. This recipe is a testimonial to her acumen.
ON-DEMAND: Listen to Faith and Raghavan Iyer talk about this recipe, as well as other recipes from Raghavan’s book.
