Sweet Potato

Difficulty: Very Easy

Time: 45min

Number of servings: 18 (2-inch-long oval pieces)


600g (1.3lb.) sweet potatoes

4 tbsp. granulated sugar

4 tbsp. heavy cream or milk

4 tbsp. butter

a few drops of vanilla extract

1 egg yolk for egg wash

toasted black sesame seeds


1. Cut sweet potatoes into small chunks and soak in water to remove starch and prevent discoloration.

2. Cook in boiling water for 15 minutes until soft.

3. Drain and mash with a fork in the pot. You can strain to purée if you have time.

4. Add butter, sugar, heavy cream (or milk is ok), and vanilla extract, then mix well. If you think the mixture is too soft, you can heat it to dry out a little bit.

5. Use plastic wrap to form it into 2-inch-long oval shapes.

6. Mix 1 egg yolk and 1/2 tbsp. of water. Brush the top of the sweet potato with the egg wash. Sprinkle with toasted black sesame seeds.

7. Bake in the oven at 200C(390F) for 10 minutes or toaster oven for about 5 minutes until browned and shiny on top.
