How to make Sweet Potato Brownies

A family favorite from the kitchen of Mrs. Anne, a sweet potato brownie with an orange glaze is a cake-life brownie that is so tasty, you will have to hide your plate! Made moist with grated sweet potato. Yum, Yum!


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 2 cups peeled and finely shredded or grated sweet potatoes


  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. soft butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. orange zest
  • Enough water stirred in to make a thin glaze-add water a tablespoon at a time until glaze thins out for spreading.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line a 9 x 13 baking pan. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time and then add the vanilla. Mix in the flour until just blended. Fold in the sweet potatoes with a spoon. Spread the batter evenly in the pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool about 15 minutes before spreading glaze. Let glaze set before cutting into squares. Serves 24-2 x 2 squares.
