Sweet Potato Muffins

Saw Yam Tea Cake recipe from Alex Goh's 'Creative making of Cakes', but since I don have yam and coconut milk, I substituted with sweet potato, yogurt and milk.


250g     butter
180g     sugar
Pinch of salt

4           eggs

180g     sweet potato, steamed (I used those purple potatoes)
25g       sugar
80ml    yogurt
80ml    milk

290g     flour
1 tbsp    milk powder
1/2 tsp  baking powder
  1. Cream (A) til light and fluffy
  2. Add (B) and cream til light and smooth
  3. Mix (C) til well blended while the cooked sweet potato is still hot.  Leave to cool.  Add it into the above mixture and mix til combined
  4. Lastly, fold in the sieved (D) and mix til well incorporated
  5. Pour mixture into muffin cups
  6. Bake at 180 C for 20 minutes
After I mashed the sweet potato, I found that it contained some tiny roots, afraid that it may ruin the texture, I rub it thru a sieve to get rid of the roots and made the sweet potato smoother, cost me about 15 minutes for this tedious process.

I had the 1st batch with chocolate chips which is little girls favorites

2nd batch with toffee bits

Satisfied with the texture and taste, fluffy and yummy!



May i ask why you use double cuppy casings when you bake muffins? Thanks.

Hi, Family First, well, I used double casing for those little muffin cups only, cos they r very thin. If I used only one, they'd go out of shapes and look terribly ugly.

Hi 3lilangels, little girl was a bit skeptical when I told her it was sweet potato muffins, but after trying the 1st one, she finished 4!
