Southern caramel cake is typically a multi-layered affair of yellow sponge cake that many see as just a delivery vehicle for the decadent caramel frosting. This simple, somewhat healthier one-layer version of the popular dessert has caramel with benefits. Sweet potato adds another dimension of flavor to the frosting while muscling out some sugar.
