Praline Sweet Potatoes

This week I tried a yummy new sweet  potato recipe. I was so happy that my kids love it too, seeing that I have such a hard time getting them to eat vegetables, especially my son. My daughter had 2 helpings and my son ate his entire serving. Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A and they also provide a nice amount of vitamin C. I found this recipe on the back of the Princella sweet potato can. It was super easy.


29 oz can of sweet potatoes in light syrup
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/3 packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour(I used 5)
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Heat oven to 350. Place drained potatoes in an ungreased 1 & 1/2 quart casserole dish. In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Blend well. Sprinkle over sweet potatoes. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.

Pin It

THANK YOU!!! I lost my worn and much used Princella label, and now can't find that brand at my local grocery stores. Even the Princella website does not list this recipe. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without our traditional sweet potatoes! Thanks again!

I, too, lost my Princella label, Last year I downloaded this recipe from Cooks.com. It;s the same as Amber's but produces a third more:
40 oz can Princella yams, drained
Half Cup chopped pecans
Half Cup Coconut (optional)
Half cup firmly packed brown sugar
one-quarter cup flour
One-quarter cup butter, melted
Preparation and cooking time same as Amber's recipe

Great recipe I've used for a few years. But my twist is I smash up the sweet potatoes before putting em in the baking dish and topping them.

Thank you! Princella didn't put the recipe on the can this year and I panicked! But, through the magic of Google and your blog, Thanksgiving is saved. :-)

Thank You Amber!!! I also lost my label covered in sweet potato juice. I thought I was the only Princella "label saver". You saved our Thanksgiving!

I'm glad everyone was able to find this, seemingly, lost recipe! Happy Thanksgiving!!

Thank you! I was in a bind, too, because my local store didn't carry Princella this year. My twist is that I mix in Great Grains cereal, the one with raisins, dates and pecans. Makes a kind of crumble with the other ingredients, and I add it to the top as well.

Thanks, Joni

Me too! I went to store to get the ingredients for my special Dinner that I'm having tomorrow for 12 guests, ham, sweet potatoes, looked at label, NO RECIPE ON PRINCELLA LABEL!!! My trusty iPad in purse saved the day, your BLOG came up. I will definitely put this recipe in my recipe book! Only sweet potato recipe that I get raves on every time I make it. Thank you!!!!
