Sweet Potato Pineapple Cake

Here is a unique cake...
Have you ever spent way too long searching for a recipe.  Cookbooks spread all over and lots of tabs opened on the computer?  I did that this week searching for a cake recipe using sweet potatoes. I noted many including one that added banana but finally settled on this one with pineapple.

gathering


 I cut hydrangea blooms and brought them in to dry.
Some are huge.
I had enough for a large vase full for my (newly) painted powder room.
~I will post about the re-done powder room shortly~
and for a wreath that I have been moving about looking for just the right location
I dry hydrangeas simply by setting the cut stems in a vase of water.
In the past, I have dried them by hanging upside down but this is so much easier and they dry quickly.
It is important to leave the blossoms on the bush until they begin to dry naturally and become papery.
I cut these hydrangeas in late September.
