Sweet Potato Cake

Whenever I buy cake, when it's not chocolate cake it's sweet potato cake. I thought it was strange to put sweet potato in a cake and for me sweet potatoes are not that special for me it's because I had too much sweet potato way back home. We don't buy sweet potatoes in my country, when we have at home, we usually receive them from my relatives who have farm or from my neighbors. But here in Korea, we can't never receive from neighbors, you have to buy them from the supermarket for a very high price.

One day, while I was looking for our anniversary cake, the saleslady recommended me the sweet potato cake because they were out of chocolate cake. They only had icing cake but my hubby doesn't like icings so I didn't want to disappoint her and besides I was curious about the taste so since then when I buy cake, if it's not chocolate cake, then it's sweet potato cake.

So on our last anniversary, that was a few days ago, I bought this sweet potato cake because we still have some chocolate ice cream.

The cake has sweet potato toppings and the bread is inserted with ground potatoes so it has sweet and soft taste.

I can't never have this taste if I didn't come here in Korea. Koreans believe that sweet potatoes are good for our health so they are trying to make different kinds of menus made of sweet potatoes. And I'm a big fan of sweet potato cake and pizza.
