I used 5 large sweet potatoes, omitted the Flour, used 6 Tbs butter, used 1/4 Cup canned PET Evaporated milk instead of regular mile, & was generous with the measured sugar & Brown sugar

Bake the sweet potatoes. Do not add the 1/2 cup sugar to the mashed sweet potatoes. They are sweet enough. But do add the brown sugar to the pecan topping. So yummy!
