I'm looking for a Sweet Potato Cake recipe that was in a 1975-1980 Southern Living cookbook 
It was made with raw shredded sweet potato and had coconut cream filling. 

Hello Jacki,

The only sweet potato cake recipes that I can find from Southern Living are these:

Triple Coconut Sweet Potato Cake

Sweet Potato Cake with Coconut Filling & Caramel Frosting

The Southern Living website recipe archives do not appear to go back as far as 1975 Ė 1980.

There is another sweet potato cake recipe with coconut filling below.

Hi again Uncle Phaedrus 

I come on to your site to look around and when I am searching for recipes by ingredient, this time itís
Sweet Potatoes.

Now as I own the Southern Living 1980 Annual Recipes plus 1993 one too!  For some reason Aussie like to bring home
cookbooks,  I like to collect them from second hand book shops.  

In 1980 Annual there is a recipe that is very close to recipe posted in 7/24/15.

Subject: Recipe for Golden Corrals Sweet Potato Casserole

Hi, I'm searching for a recipe for a sweet potato casserole served 
at the Golden Corral   here in Florida. I'm looked on the web and
read some of them. But I know that there not exactly the same
because I was told my a restaurant employee that they add oats.
And I've not seen any recipe with that ingredient. I would very
much appreciate any help you can give me Thank You
Norma

Hello Norma,

Sorry, I had no success locating a Golden Corral sweet potato casserole recipe that made any mention at all of oats or oatmeal. I did find Golden Corral sweet potato casserole recipes without oats, and there are other sweet potato casserole recipes with an oatmeal topping.

Iíll post this request
