Sweet Potato's

Sitting at the bus stop yesterday waiting for my son to get home, the guy who lives up the road a little stopped by and handed me a bag of sweet potato's. I knew right then what I was having for supper
I got this recipe last year off the net, and luckily I found it again...

6 large sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash.
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, orange juice and vanilla until smooth. Pour into prepared dish.
Bake in preheated oven 40 minutes.
I add some chopped walnuts to the mix, and top it with more walnuts and some shredded coconut.
