My Aunt Marjorie was quite a cook, and could turn out delicious vegetable dishes as well as baked goods and desserts. This one is a favorite of ours. Recipe is from her unpublished cookbook, compiled by her granddaughter Jessica.
Preheat oven to 350°. Cook grated sweet potatoes in boiling water 5 minutes; drain well.
Combine sweet potatoes, eggs, milk, butter, vanilla, sugar, and spices in large mixing bowl. Beat together 1 minute. Pour into greased 2-quart casserole dish, or into 6 individual 1-cup ramekins.
Place casserole or ramekins in a larger pan of hot water, and bake for 45-50 minutes (a bit less for individual ramekins), until set in middle (test with knife). Allow to cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
