I had wanted to mark the day – the holiday celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday – with something food-related. I heard that one of his favorites was pecan pie, but as much as I enjoy it, I just couldn’t come up with one today.
I also read that he enjoyed all manner of soul food, including sweet potatoes. Then I remembered! Last year I fell upon a nice little spicy cake made with fresh sweet potatoes and I wrote about it here (recipe included!), on the Edible Queens Blog.
If you decide to make it, which would surely be a good idea, please leave me a comment and let me know how you like it! Hoping you had a nice holiday weekend – and perhaps gave a moment’s pause to reflect on Dr. King’s voice.
