Ingredients

1 box
yellow cake mix
4 Tbsp
butter, room temperature
1
egg

FOR THE FILLING:

2 c
sweet potato puree
4 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1
egg
1/4 c
sugar
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
nutmeg

FOR THE TOPPING:

1 c
granola
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 c
dark chocolate chips
1 Tbsp
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Begin by combining the cake mix, butter and egg together. Mix until little balls of cake mix form.
2
Press into a lightly greased 9x13 inch pan. Then in the mixing bow, combine cream cheese, spices, egg, sugar and sweet potato puree. mix well.
3
Pour the sweet potato puree mix over the top of the crust.
4
In a medium bowl, mix the granola, cinnamon and dark chocolate chips together.
5
If necessary add 1 tablespoon melted butter to help the ingredients stick together.
6
Sprinkle the topping over the sweet potato filling. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
7
Notes: I found that the cake mix layer (crust) was what needed to be clean during my toothpick check, the sweet potato layer remains somewhat creamy and solidifies as it cools.
8
If you never made sweet potato puree, simply boil the sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, until tender when pricked with a fork.
9
Allow them to cool slightly on the counter, then peel and mash the potatoes.
10
The mash may need 2-4 tablespoons water to make it thinner and more puree like.
11
You can do this in a blender to eliminate any potato pieces. The puree can be kept in the freezer and used whenever you need it.
