  • 1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup reserved liquid from sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup (from a 15 oz. can) Bruce’s Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes in Syrup; drained and pureed

Frosting:

  • 1 canister vanilla frosting
  • 2 tbs. reserved liquid from sweet potatoes

Steps to Prepare

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray a 6-count donut mold with non-stick bakers spray; set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a mixer beat together the cake mix, egg and egg yolk, vegetable oil, water and 1/4 cup sweet potato liquid until blended.
  4. Add the pureed Bruce’s Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes and yogurt; mix until just incorporated. If the batter seems a bit stiff, add a couple tablespoons more water.
