You'd think it's a cake or cookie or some other baked goodie, but it's a yam cake that makes a perfect side dish for breakfast or dinner to replace the starchy spuds! And it’s a handy snack as well. These are a welcome addition to holiday menus. The ultimate comfort food: soft, a bit messy and delicious. It's wonderful to find something so naturally sweet isn't it? yames are great mashed, fried or baked. But shaped them into patties and brown them in a pan, and they will be the main attraction!
