(WFRV) —


Yield: 10 servings


5 sweet potatoes, scrubbed

4 bananas, unpeeled

3/4 cup butter, at room temperature, divided

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cups chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 375°F. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork, place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 30-50 minutes, until potatoes are slightly soft.

Place bananas on same baking sheet and continue roasting for 10-15 minutes, until sweet potatoes and bananas are soft. Remove from oven, keeping oven on. Let potatoes cool.

Scoop out the flesh of sweet potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Peel bananas and add to bowl, along with ½ cup butter and honey. Add salt and beat with stand or hand mixer until mixture is well combined and fluffy. Place mixture into an oven-proof serving dish and smooth the top.

Place ¼ cup butter, flour, brown sugar and pecans in a medium bowl and work together with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture over the sweet potatoes and place in oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crumbs are golden brown. Serve immediately.
