Why I Love This Recipe
This dessert comes from the beautiful US Virgin Islands.

Peel and grade sweet potatoes and place in a large bowl. Put into combined milk and cream.
In a seperate bowl, cream butter and sugar; combine with sweet potatoes.
Add remaining ingredients and pour mixture in a shallow baking dish.
