3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup evaporated milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter an 8-inch baking dish. Place potatoes and 1 tsp. salt in a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender, 15 minutes. Drain.
Place potatoes in a large bowl and whip with an electric mixer until smooth and light. Add sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. salt, evaporated milk and butter; beat until smooth. Pour sweet potato mixture into prepared dish and bake until golden and slightly puffed, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes, then serve warm.
We weren't sure about this recipe... it's too sweet to be on the dinner table.. but it's missing the crust to be a dessert.. so we didn't know how to classify this. We did eat it though.. it tasted very good! But it would taste better with the crust ;)
