Mama Bankes’ Sweet Potato Casserole

One way to share God’s love is to share concoctions made from his creation for consumption (food). Here is Mama Bankes’ recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole.


3 cups cooked mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sugar, white
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp butter, melted

Pecan Topping

1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup sugar, brown
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter


Marshmallow Topping



  1. Blend potatoes, white sugar, eggs, salt, butter, milk, and vanilla in a mixer.
  2. Take the strings off the beaters, and throw away (the strings, not the beaters).
  3. Beat again, removing the fibers. (Don’t forget to unplug the mixer when you are in contact w/ the beaters.)
  4. Pour into a baking dish (2qt. casserole). You may cook as is or may add topping. Bake 350°F for 35 min.
  5. Topping: Mash everything together until everything sticks to everything else.

Notes: If you want to use marshmallows for the topping, top at about 5 minutes before the casserole is done. For a more tender, less burnt pecan topping, top about halfway through.
