Easy ☆ Comfort Food ☆ My Sweet Potato Cakes

These are sweet potato cakes that you can taste the natural flavors of the ingredients.

Ingredients: Makes about 15 cakes

Sweet potato
500 g
Butter (unsalted)
20 g
50 g
50 ml
A pinch
Egg yolk
1 egg's worth
Egg white (for the eggwash)
1 egg's worth
Water (for the eggwash)
A small amount


1. Peel the skins from the sweet potatoes, slice into thin rounds, then boil until tender.
2. Drain the hot water, mash while still hot, add butter, then mix well. Add milk, sugar, and salt, then simmer on low heat.
3. Stir with a wooden spoon to prevent the batter from sticking to the bottom of the pan, and cook out the liquid. Remove from heat once the batter becomes thick and heavy.
4. Let the cakes cool to the touch, then thoroughly whisk the egg yolk. Shape the cakes into boat-like shapes, then arrange on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
5. For the egg wash, mix a small amount of water to the egg white, paint it on the surface of the cakes, then brown the cakes in the toaster oven.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to come up with a sweet potato cake recipe that I could savor the rustic deliciousness of the sweet potato.
By adding 1 teaspoon rum to the ingredients, you can turn this into a delightful dessert for "grown-ups." Add rum in Step 4 with the egg yolk.
