  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Bake sweet potatoes at 400° for 1 hour or until tender. Let stand until cool to touch (about 20 minutes); peel and mash sweet potatoes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°.
  2. Beat mashed sweet potatoes, granulated sugar, and next 5 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon potato mixture into a greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish.
  3. Combine cornflakes cereal and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle over casserole in diagonal rows 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes. Sprinkle marshmallows in alternate rows between the cornflake mixture; bake 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

The whole ingredients make around 6 – 8 servings of Southern Sweet Potato Casserole. It will take you approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes to complete this side dish. Feel free to adjust the sweetness and the crunchiness of this recipe by making some modifications with the sugar and cereal. But take the recipe as it is so you can taste the real sweetness of this deli.
