Sweet Potato Pudding © 1949

4 cups grated raw sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Godchaux Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 cups sweet milk
4 eggs
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
Cream butter and sugar together, add well-
beaten eggs. Then add milk, sweet potatoes, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Mix well. Pour into buttered pan and bake slowly until set. Cover with marshmallows and allow to soften in oven.

*Since the recipe doesn't say what temperature to set the oven, I'd assume a moderate (350ºF.-400ºF.) setting would be acceptable.

This reminds me of a Thanksgiving recipe, warm and full of nutmeg and cinnamon......I can almost smell it now!

Terri-
That's what I was thinking too, as I read the ingredients. Personally, I think it sounds even better than the old yam standard. Sounds like a guaranteed hit to me!
