So many recipes - we are 43 weeks in for this year and the wonderful recipes keep coming!

I think on the 52nd week I’ll post a huge listing of all the recipes from the full year....categorized for easy look-up - hopefully the thread will look like a Gigantic Online Free Republic Cook Book.

We had a family gathering Monday night. Shrimp boil, not cooking for month.

Here's a good cake recipe for the fall. I have been making Louisiana Yam Cake for over 40 years, and it is still a hit every where I take it.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp baking soda

2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups oil
2 cups canned yams ( I use Bruce's)
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Sift dry ingredients.
Mash yams for 1hr
In large bowl put sugar and beat in eggs one at a time by hand.
Add oil, Yams and vanilla
Mix pecans in the dry ingredients and add to the sugar, oil and yam mixture.

You can either make 12 jumbo cupcakes, or oil and flour a large bundt pan. Bake the cupcakes for 30 to 35 minutes , the bundt 1hr 15min or until tester comes out clean.
Cool inverted on plate


4oz. cream cheese
1/2 box powdered sugar or until consistory is what you like.
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Mix together until smooth

Split the bundt cake in half and put the frosting on the bottom half. Top with the crown and sift powdered sugar on top.

I made the cupcakes and sold them last week at a huge town wide yard sale. Sold out both days A sweet hundred in profit.
