Sweet Potato Casserole

This is an old recipe that I tweeked ever so slightly. The topping is delicious. The old recipe used to call for cornflakes, but I modified the topping to a more caramel -like topping that comes out sweet and delicate. This has a pudding- like texture and would be great topped with some Cool Whip.
