Pam’s Yams

From Zoe Eng (’14)


Makes 8 servings. (But, I usually use a regular 9″x13″ pan and there are more servings that way.)


2 1/2 lbs. mashed sweet potatoes (approximately 3 sweet potatoes, or 40 oz. canned, drained, and mashed)
1/4 c. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 oz. can crushed pineapple

1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/3 c. melted butter
3/4 c. chopped pecans
Combine first 5 ingredients.
Spoon into lightly greased 8-in. square baking dish.
Combine remaining ingredients and sprinkle over top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
