Made this cake in a bundt pan. Really could not taste the sweet potato. It looked nice could have been moister. If I made it again, I might add more sweet potato

I never got around to putting the Orange Marmalade on it. My family loves this cake. Several people wanted the recipe after taking it to a meeting and I told them about your web site.
