Moist and dense cake or rather drier and fluffy? I’m definitely more of the moist, smooth, and chocolaty cakes like this one.
This recipe is from my mom, it is very simple to make, it only has 6 ingredients, and, believe it or not, 70% of the recipe is a veggie, and if you already know my recipes, you can imagine what it is, right?
The sweet potato is very versatile when it comes to cooking desserts or cakes, it provides large amounts of fiber, moisture, a soft texture, and a little natural sweetness, so if you still have not tried to add it to your sweet recipes you are missing something important.
In addition to sweet potato, this cake has eggs, which we will separate into yolks and whites, and we will beat them separately to later unite everything. Sugar, in this
It is an easy cake to make and with ingredients that you sure already have at home, nothing strange, expensive, or complicated, although you must follow the steps carefully to achieve a correct texture.
