I’ve been craving something gingery all morning. I carried home a huge bag of sweet potatoes yesterday and wondered if I could find a recipe to use them in. Thanks to ‘dinner with Julie’ and this great recipe, it was easy and tastes so yummy. I tinkered with the recipe slightly using part wholemeal flour and swapping the molasses for honey, because I didn’t have any. 

1) roast 2 medium sized sweet potatoes (wash, cut a slit in the stop, place on a baking tray lined with foil and bake on 180 for 45 mins).

2) place roasted sweet potato in food processor with: 1/3 cup melted butter, 1/3 cup milk, 2 eggs, 1 dessert spoon of honey, 1/2 cup brown sugar. Whizz together, it’s quite a wet mixture.

3) in a mixing bowl mix: 1 cup plain flour, 1/2 cup wholemeal flour, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 2 tsp of ground ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon, small shake of salt.

4) mix the wet ingredients to dry and fold together. 

5) line a loaf tin with baking parchment and pour in the batter.

6) bake on 170 degrees C for 50mins.

Once baked, pop on a wire rack and leave to cool, and try your best not to dive in yet.
