Wrap in the newspaper and microwave for 2 minutes until hot to the touch (about 60℃).
Once it has been heated until hot, microwave it for 10 minutes using the defrosting function.
If you want to brown the surfaces, bake the potato a little bit in the oven, grill, or toaster oven.
Story Behind this Recipe
Since the weather is getting colder and colder, I've been wanting to have some baked sweet potato! So I made this easy version in the microwave right in my own home.
1) Wrap the sweet potato in newspaper. If you use plastic wrap, the potato will get wet with the steam. 2) In Step 2, the approximate cooking times are: 200 g - 1 1/2 minutes, 500 g - 3 minutes. 3) In Step 3, the approximate defrosting times are: 200 g - 9 minutes, 500 g - 12 minutes.
