Sweet Potato Spice Snack Cake

A lunchbox favorite and close cousin to gingerbread. Another very easy way to use up leftover baked or steamed sweet potatoes.

In the bowl of an electric mixer combine for about 2 minutes:
2 eggs
1 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato
¼ cup molasses
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil

Sift together:

1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
3 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
2 tsp cinnamon

Fold dry ingredients into the sweet potato mixture to combine well but do not over mix. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x9 inch square baking pan and bake in a 325 degree F oven for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve. Delicious warm or cold; also delicious with butterscotch or rum sauce.
