Golden Yam Brownies

In my mind there is something a little wrong with a brownie that is not, well... brown. Chocolate brownies are the norm in our house and when I pulled these out of the oven, lets just say, their reception was not one of cheers. But one bite (if you can talk them into it) and we were in for a very pleasant surprise. These are delicious, extremely moist and you would never know there was yam in them. My family loved them. Give them a try, your family will be surprised, and it is always nice to sneak in a veggie wherever you can.
Yam Brownie Recipe
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups peeled and finely shredded yam

1 cup powdered sugar
2 TBL butter
2 TBL milk

Preheat the oven to 350〫Grease a 9"x13" baking dish

In large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then mix in vanilla.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into batter until just incorporated. Fold in shredded yam. Spread the batter evenly in the greased baking dish

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool about 10 minutes in pan.

Mix together the powdered sugar, butter and milk and spread onto brownies while they are still warm. The brownies will absorb some of the topping. Serve warm.
