These are for sure the BEST candied yams in the world! Every Thanksgiving my family assigns this dish to me to bring because everyone LOVES them. I do not like yams, but I will eat a whole pan of these!
Note: If you don’t want these to be really sweet, decrease the amount of sugar added to the yams and the topping by about a half a cup.
Candied Yams: Copycat of Boston Market
2 cans 40 oz. each Yams
1/4 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup whole milk or evaporated milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup (one stick) butter softened
Using a mixer, bosch or kitchenaid, blend the yams, vanilla, butter, sugar and milk at medium speed until well blended. Whisk the eggs together in a bowl then blend into the yam mixture.
Pour into a cake pan and spread evenly.
Make the topping by using a fork to mix together the flour and brown sugar. Add the butter and mix well with a fork.
Sprinkle evenly on top of the yams.
Bake at 350 for about 30 min or until the yams don’t wiggle 😉
