“This is one of my most-requested dishes, and it's perfect for Easter, Thanksgiving, or anytime you need a fancy side dish. It looks much more difficult to make than it is, and guests are always impressed! Even people who don't like sweet potatoes ask for second helpings! I hope you enjoy it too. Maple syrup can be substituted for the vanilla extract.”

I've been making this forever and everyone always loves it. I usually top it with chopped pecans for some extra crunch.

Fabulous! I made it for Christmas dinner at a friends house - they asked for an 'authentic American' holiday dish but I just can't do candied yams as they are far too sweet. I couldn't be bothered with peeling and chopping so I put the potatoes in the oven instead; the peels fell off and they mashed easily. I reduced the sugar as suggested by others and because baking tends to make for sweeter veg than boiling, so I used 1/2 cup demera sugar. I mixed it up the night before since I had to bake early in the morning before traveling. My husband won't eat tree nuts, so I put crushed honey nut cornflakes on top instead. It baked up beautifully rising up the full height of the dish, but I did have to bake it a good 30 minutes more than the recipe. Overall, easy to make and wonderful results. EDIT - made it again for dinner with friends without the topping but it was still brilliant! EDIT - Had a friend make it but they pulled it out too soon so more like spoon bread than souffle.

This was a nice side dish. It wasn't quite what I expected though...I've never made a souffle before, but I thought it was supposed to 'pouf' up. This came out like mashed sweet potatoes with pumpkin pie flavour. Everyone said it was very tasty. Next time I may try to add candied pecans as someone suggested. This took a lot longer to cook in my oven than the recipe suggested...90 minutes total!
