Sweet potato pone is made with sweet potatoes and molasses and is traditionally soul food. It can be served as a dessert or side dish. I serve it as a side dish. I had not thought about it for years until someone asked me for the recipe on my Facebook page.3 to 4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and grated 1/4 stick of butter or margarine or 4 tablespoons, softened 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1/4 cup molasses (I used sorghum molasses but can use any kind) 1/2 cup evaporated milk (can use half n half) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves Cream butter and brown sugar with mixer. Add eggs, molasses, milk, vanilla and spices and continue mixing. Fold in shredded sweet potatoes. Bake in sprayed 8 x 8 casserole dish in preheated 300 degree oven about one hour. Makes about 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy! Note: Some people add nuts to this. You can also add a little lemon or orange rind, grated, too.
