Sweet potato bake

Sweet Potato Bake
2 to 2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped nuts
1/3 cup miniature marshmallows
Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; cover with water. Cover; bring to a boil. Boil for 30 to 45 minutes, or just until tender. Drain; cool slightly and peel. In a bowl, mash potatoes. Stir in butter, sugar and raisins. Place in a greased 2 quart baking dish; sprinkle with nuts and marshmallows. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until heated through and marshmallows begin to brown.
Variation:
For a new twist to this classic recipe, add 1 teaspoon grated orange peel while mashing the sweet potatoes.
Makes 8 to 10 servings.
