  • 500g sweet potato
  • 125g butter
  • 200g caster sugar

    1. Boil sweet potato whole in skin until soft throughout.

    3. Preheat oven Gas Mark 4
    4. Mix the potato with the butter until it turns into a smooth mash. Then add in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg and cinnamon. Tip - if feeling extra indulgent (and why not!) substitue some of the milk for cream. Mix well.

This recipe is definitely for 2 pastry cases! - having not known that before I put as much as I could in the case, and it overflowed and took longer to cook. It does have a really nice flavour, and recommended with whipped cream, but make sure u use 2 cases

Is this sweet or savoury? (Forgive my British ignorance)
