Directions
  1. In a covered large saucepan cook sweet potatoes in enough boiling water to cover for 12 to 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain and cool slightly. In a food processor combine sweet potatoes, egg, brown sugar, and butter. Cover and process until smooth. In small bowl stir together flour, bread crumbs, baking powder, and salt.
