How to Make Granny's Alabama Sweet Potatoes
- Boil sweet potatoes until they are soft. Peel and mash while they are still hot. In a large bowl, Mix potatoes, 1 stick of butter (cut it into cubes and it will melt nicely), coconut, beaten eggs, vanilla, 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and the white sugar.
- In a separate bowl, melt the other stick of butter and add the remaining brown sugar, the chopped pecans, and the corn flakes. Mix well. Note: I double this step because I really like the crunchy stuff.
- Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter or spray or whatever you like to use. I use a casserole dish and butter. Put in potatoes. Layer crunchy topping on top of the potatoes and bake at 325 until bubbly and golden brown. Usually about 30 minutes.
