Sweet potato casserole

The BEST and healthiest dessert you've had in a while. Yes it's healthy even though it has butter in it! :) Butter is considered a good fat, unlike margarine, or vegetable oils (with the exception of olive oil of course). Try it, you won't regret it... guaranteed!

4 cups sweet potato cubed
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs beaten
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter softened
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup walnuts chopped
10 dates pitted and chopped
3 tbsp of butter soft
1/3 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 175 C
Cook sweet potatoe, steam or boil. Mash, and mix with honey, eggs, salt, butter, milk and vanilla till fluffy and smooth. (make sure you add the eggs last so the "just-boiled" sweet potatoes don't cook them. I usually add the cold milk to it and other ingredients first, mash it a bit and when it cools off i add the beaten eggs and mix them in)
Put in a 9 x 13 greased with butter
In a med. bowl mix walnuts, dates, shredded coconut and cut butter into it
sprinkle on top of sweet potatoe mixture
Bake 30 min.
