SHOULD I USE CANNED OR HOMEMADE SWEET POTATO PUREE?

Typically homemade puree is thinner than canned puree which could possibly affect the consistency of your batter and outcome of your cake. I recommend using canned sweet potato. However, keep in mind that you MUST make sure to use puree that doesn’t have any added spices or flavoring as that will affect the flavor of your cake. You will want to use pure sweet potato puree.
