Sweet Potato Cake

"Uncle Bud Hurt bakes this cake in his 80s" This note was written on the recipe by great-grandma. I don't know who Uncle Bud is.

1.5 c cooking oil
2 c sugar
4 eggs, separated
4 c hot water
2.5 c sifted cake flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1.5 c grated raw sweet potatoes
1 c chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla

Combine oil, sugar. Beat until smooth. Add egg yolks. Then add dry ingredients. Stir well and add sweet potatoes, nuts and vanilla. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into batter. Grease 3 (8 inch) layer pans. Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes. Frost with sweet potato cake frosting.
