Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat cake mix, 1 cup sweet potato, milk, oil, eggs and 1 teaspoons spice in large bowl with mixer until well blended.
  3. Pour into 2 layers (I make 4 then layers to avoid splitting).
  4. Bake 28 to 30 minutes (or 14 minutes if making thin layers) or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar, remaining spice and sweet potato (1/2 cup) -- mix well.
  6. Gently stir in cool whip.
  7. AFTER CAKE IS COMPLETELY COOL, put 1/3 of the mixture between the layers.
  8. JUST BEFORE SERVING, drizzle with caramel and top with pecans.
