1 cup CRISCO® All Vegetable Shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
5 large eggs
1/4 cup sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat together shortening and butter for about 2 minutes or until well-blended. Gradually add granulated sugar and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, beating 5 to 7 minutes or until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until yellow disappears.
In small bowl, combine sweet potato, milk and vanilla. Set aside.

Bake at 350 F for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a knife inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
