The old recipe I remember from my mom's cookbook is similar but I agree it was different. 3 Tablespoons cream, 3 Tablespoons real butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I continue to make this year after year - it's the best. I usually use the canned drained sweet potatoes/yams but have also cooked my own, both are great and the finished product is the same. I heat the butter and cream then add the sugar to dissolve and stir in the potatoes to heat through and coat with sauce. Put all in casserole and top with marshmallows. Bake 350 till nicely browned on top. If I use two cans or the large tall can of yams, I just double the recipe - perfect!
