  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup(s) firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) pure maple syrup
  • 8 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper


  1. 1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a baking dish, combine the sweet potatoes, brown sugar, maple syrup and butter. Cover with foil. Bake about 1 1/2 hours or until sweet potatoes are tender. 2. Transfer sweet potatoes to a large bowl, reserving any cooking liquid. Use a mixer to beat the potatoes, adding a little reserved cooking liquid as needed to reach a smooth consistency. Add the cream, salt and pepper. Continue mixing until the sweet potatoes are fluffy. If desired, the sweet potatoes may be warmed over low heat in a heavy saucepan.
