Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Sweet Potato Pan Cake


  • 30 oz Sweet Potatoes (crushed) (I used real potatoes not canned)
  • 4 Whole eggs
  • 12 oz Evaporated Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 box Yellow Cake mix
  • 3/4 cup melted Butter


Mix together the sweet potato, eggs, milk, sugar, DP Pineapple Head, cinnamon, nutmeg. Pour into a slightly greased 13 x 9 inch pan.

Sprinkle the yellow cake mix on top. (do not mix in batter). Gently spread the cake mix on top of batter so it is even across the pan. Sprinkle a little more Pineapple Head on the cake mix. Pour butter evenly over the cake mix.

Set Big Green Egg up indirect with platesetter feet down. Get the BGE to 350. Place the 13 x 9 pan on the platesetter. Put something under the pan to lift the pan off the platesetter like BGE feet, copper t's, etc.

Bake 1 hour (turn pan every 20-30 minutes to avoid hot spots) until a toothpick comes out clean.

Serve hot or cold with whipped cream or ice cream.


The original recipe calls for Pumpkin but we prefer sweet potatoes.

Number of Servings: 24
