Fall Favorite Sweet Potato Pudding

For holiday dinners, I double, triple or quad this recipe, depending upon how many are coming to eat. But for my family this makes just enough.

My mom used to put marshmallows on top before baking, but I'm not a fan of them, so I leave them off and opt for a dollop of whipped cream, instead.
