  • For the sweet potato part:
  • 4 cups cooked & mashed sweet potatoes about 4-5 large sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • For the praline topping:
  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together the cooked (and mashed) sweet potatoes, white sugar, vanilla extract, beaten eggs, & heavy cream. Spread into a casserole dish.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the softened butter, brown sugar, flour, pecans, & vanilla extract. I like to use my hands for this part, it makes it so much easier in my opinion. Crumble the topping all over the sweet potatoes.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
