    HUGE hit in our house. Lovely moist cake with wonderful caramel taste. Made a white choc buttercream as didnt have cream for the ganache. Deeelicious and given that all cakes made in lockdown are fat and calorie free what's not to like 😄

    This recipe is AMAZING. I was wary of the sweet potato but you can't see or taste it at all.

    I wanted a thick ganache so I used double the chocolate in the ganache.

    I used a 20cm cake tin which was too small. Next time I will either halve the cake recipe or use a square tin.


    100% recommend this cake.

  • Amazing cake!! So moist and good!...

    Submitted by icecreamsoup on 27. June 2019 - 14:54.

    Amazing cake!! So moist and good!
    I reduced the sugar to 150g and chucked in a little more sweet potato as I just had a bit leftover. So easy to make and the cake is still moist after 4 days (yes we are slow cake eaters here). I will try reducing sugar even more next time to see how it goes. I highly recommend this recipe, especially since the inlaws loved it.
    I also left out the ganache and it is still good.

    Engagement cake

    I used this cake recipe (minus the ganache) to make a friends engagement cake. I then had 7 requests to duplicate the cake for a birthday. engagements and now a wedding.

    Tastes amazing. Just used a basic vanilla butter cream to layer and then cover. Amazing!

    Submitted by Lillilingerie on 14. May 2019 - 14:13.

    I tried the receipe and the only thing I changed was cut the sugar down to 90g and I used 200g milk choc. I baked it in a bundt tin for 25 mins. The cake turned out extremely dry and it was awful to eat.

    Submitted by Susielikestocook on 13. September 2018 - 21:23.

    Hello friends, I have made this cake twice, so easy, just slapped it in a square tin lined with baking paper, and cooked perfectly, does not sink in the middle, and cuts perfectly also. I have a friend who is coeliac,and I wondered how this recipe would go, subbing almond meal instead of flour? Any idea? Maybe more of a slice, than a cake? Appreciate your thoughts, cheers, sue
