Sweet Potato Biscuits

Depending on the moisture content of sweet potatoes, you may need to adjust the quantity of milk, adding the remaining 1/4 cup. Eat these warm out of the oven with butter or jam.

Recipe Time

Prep: 20 Minutes
Bake: 15 Minutes


2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 to 1 1/4 cups milk
4 cups self-rising flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons sugar


Stir together sweet potatoes, butter, and 1 cup milk until well blended. Add flour, baking soda, and sugar, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Add remaining 1/4 cup milk to moisten dough, if needed.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times. Pat or roll dough to a 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch round cutter. Place biscuits on lightly greased baking sheets.

Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
