    Whole Wheat Flour, 2.5 cup
    Baking Powder, 3 tsp
    Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
    Salt, .5 tsp
    Sweet potato, cooked, baked in skin, without salt, 1.5 cup
    Water, tap, .75 cup
    Granulated Sugar, .75 cup
    Splenda, 1 cup
    Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp
    Raisins, 1 cup (not packed)
    Mott's Applesauce, Natural (unsweetened), 4 oz
    Canola Oil, .5 cup
    Egg Beaters, original - 1/4 cup, 3 serving

    Smart Balance Butter Blend Stick Unsalted, 2 tbsp
    Rum, 1.5 fl oz
    confectioners sugar, 1 cup


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a 10-cup bundt pan.

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set the mixture aside. In a separate large mixing bowl, mash the sweet potato, leaving only a slight meaty texture. Whisk together the sweet potato and the eggs. Whisk in the warm water, then the sugar and splenda, then the oil and applesauce followed by the vanilla extract. Stir in the dry ingredients until homogenous then fold in raisins. Spoon the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let the cake cool in the tin for 15 minutes and invert onto a serving platter or cake stand.

3. Meanwhile, make the glaze: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan with the rum. Pull from the heat and whisk in the confectioners' sugar until smooth.

4. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake. Slice and serve.
