Ingredients

  • 2 oz. (¼ cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1-½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg or ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup chopped toasted pecans
  • ¾ tsp. table salt
  • + 10 more ingredients
    • 1 Tbs. finely grated fresh ginger
    • 1 Tbs. molasses
    • 1 cup baked, mashed sweet potato, at room temperature or slightly warmer (from about one 15-ounce sweet potato)
    • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
    • 1-½ cups very firmly packed light brown sugar
    • ¾ cup vegetable oil; more for the pan
    • 1/8 tsp. table salt
    • ½ cup very firmly packed light brown sugar
    • 3 oz. (2/3 cup) unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 7-½ oz. (1-2/3 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour; more for the pan

In a small bowl, stir the flour, brown sugar, pecans, and salt. Drizzle the melted butter over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. The streusel should feel clumpy, not sandy, when gently squeezed between your finger- tips. If the streusel seems dry, add more melted butter.
