Ingredients

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