Healthy Eating Habits
A traditional staple on Thanksgiving Day is something your children should eat all year long...Sweet Potatoes! This month, we make it easy to make this super nutritious and kid-friendly vegetable a year-round favorite for your family. Sweet potatoes pack a super nutritious punch—providing vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. Fiber and potassium are two nutrients that are lacking in almost all preschoolers’ diets. So stock up and try these easy recipes to add sweet potatoes to your weekly meals.
Make as a special treat or snack cake.
PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Lightly grease and flour one 13 x 9-inch or two 9-inch-round baking pans.
COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger in small bowl. Combine sweet potatoes, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add oil; beat until well blended. Stir in morsels and water. Stir in flour mixture; mix until blended. Pour into prepared pan(s).
BAKE for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan(s) on wire rack(s). For layer cakes, remove from pans after 10 minutes.
Recipe makes 12 servings.
