1/2 cup flour
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar

Cover with topping
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes

  1. This sounds very tasty, Belinda.
    Once I made a sweet potato casserole where the recipe called for marshmallows. I found it too sweet.

    1. I know what you mean, Nil. I don't care for the marshmallows on mine either.

  2. Belinda,
    May I ask if you still follow CT on a Budget? I have followed Carol's blog for years, but have been unable to find it recently.

    1. Yes, she moved her blog over to Facebook.

      Here is a link to the group:

      All you need to do is answer a few questions and then wait on Carol to add you to the group. It's CTonabudget on Facebook. Hope that helps.

    2. You're welcome, Catherine. :)

  3. Thanks. Belinda. I was looking for a similar recipe. I prefer white mashed potatoes but that casserole is more of a dessert and so GOOD! I have all the ingredients too YAY!

  4. Come on, Belinda. lol. The casserole recipe would be a lovely dessert. Then there is sweet potato pie.
