This cake was beyond amazing. I did alter the recipe. I used a boxed spice cake mix, since I had one sitting in the cupboard. And I used a drained 2lb can of sweet potatoes because I misread the recipe, and I used spice rum. Gotta say this cake was great!!! I am glad I used the extra potato because your could really taste it. Next time I will use more raisins, and rum. I may experiment with adding pineapple maybe in the middle. Oh I did chop some pecans and use those in the topping (misread the recipe again.)
Thsi cake was really dense, it had the exact same texture as cheese cake. And the topping was yum.
This may replace my sweet potato pie at Christmas.
