Sweet Potato Roll



I was going through some recipes and wanted to share additional sweet potato recipes to add to my group,this is a good cake especially during the winter.
The original recipe called for 15 ounce of can sweet potato casserole filling but I couldn't find it,so I just baked sweet potatoes,mashed them with sugar and nutmeg,add a bit of canned milk if needed to make them smooth.
