Cade loves a certain steakhouse here in Utah and they serve up the yummiest sweet potatoes. This sweet potato souffle with brown sugar topping is a copycat!


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk or heavy cream any milk will do

Brown Sugar Pecans

  • 1/2 Cup pecans chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar


  • 1/4 cup butter cold and cut in cubes
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place a piece of tin foil on the oven rack.
  • Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork and bake for 45-60 minutes or until tender.
  • Carefully peel the potatoes and turn the oven down to 350 degrees.
  • Place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl and smash them until smooth.
  • Add the egg, butter, cinnamon, salt, sugars, vanilla and milk.
  • Using a handheld or standing mixer, beat everything together until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into an 8×9″ baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top with the crumb topping, and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes and serve.
  • Brown Sugar Pecans
  • In a skillet over medium heat, add the pecans and toast evenly for about a minute, tossing often.
  • Add the butter and as it's almost melted, stir in the cinnamon and brown sugar. As soon as things are coated, pour out onto a piece of parchment paper to cool.
  • In a medium sized bowl, add the cold butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon.
  • Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut into the mixture until the butter is well incorporated.
  • I like to use my hands at the end.
  • Stir in the panko and pecans and set aside until you’re ready to top the casserole.
