Story Behind this Recipe
I made caramelized apples for a tart tatan and apple tart but had some leftover, so I used them to make these muffins.
Please absolutely have the milk at room temperature. If you can't get any sweet potato powder, you can substitute it with more rice flour. If you have square muffin cups, please use them to make these fun pyramid shaped muffins.
