A little something Mum baked on a microwave during her stay here in Sydney.
Okay, not the most appetising photo of the century, but as you can see, it had diced sweet potatoes in it (don’t know what I would do without sweet potatoes in my life).
Basically, the sweet potato was mixed in with wholemeal flour, baking powder, cane sugar and egg, and zapped in the microwave for 6 minutes (our oven is 1200W).
It tasted alright for something so simple, but I thought it could be improved with a slight alteration:
- Making it in smaller containers – that way it could be a bit fluffier and also easier to cook. Simpler storage too.
- Add cinnamon!!! Everything tastes better with cinnamon in it
- Vanilla extract.
- Top with cottage cheese before serving.
- It could also be made with shredded potatoes rather than diced, if you want a more cake-like texture.
But this was still pretty good!!! Simplicity is best
