Ingredients

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

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.
