Sweet Potato Cake with Coconut Drizzle

{{totalReview}}
Since going gluten free and dairy free, I keep finding new ways to curb my sugar cravings without missing out on delicious desserts, especially during festivities. This is one of my favorite cakes to bake because it checks all the right boxes and at the same time, super easy to make. A moist and fluffy sweet potato loaf cake drizzled with a sticky sweet coconut syrup, it’s topped with a sprinkle of crushed walnuts for an added crunch and some raisins for a pop of color. The perfect dessert to go with any holiday feast!
