It's time for more cake - WUHUUUU!

Moist and flavourful, almost too easy to make, this sweet potato and rhubarb cake is your new favorite wheat and dairy free cake with no added sugars.


If you have followed my recipe development the past months, you have notices that I have experimented a lot with baking with sweet potato instead of wheat as the base ingredient, it works so well in many ways but this time I would go so far to say that I have hit the sweet potato baking jackpot.


The main ingredient is a baked sweet potato, so as you are reading this, chuck one large or a bunch of small ones in the oven with the skin on to bake - basically you can never have too much baked sweet potato in your fridge.
