Easy Sweet Potato Cake

Easy Sweet Potato Cake

I took this recipe off of the dish soap "Utamaro" brand's website. It's simple and leaves a few dishes to clean.

Ingredients: 9 shallow muffin molds

★Sweet potato
300 g
100 g
Cake flour
20 g
Baking powder
5 g
20 g
●Vegetable oil
20 g
●Sugar (I used light brown sugar)
35 g
1 tablespoon
Cinnamon Sugar
just a little if you have it


1. Cut the sweet potatoes into cubes and soak in water. Put the ★ marked sweet potatoes and milk into a pot and boil on medium-low heat. Be careful not to burn them.
2. When they become soft, roughly smash while still in the pot. Let cool. Mix in the ● marked butter, oil, sugar, and honey.
3. Then mix in the egg in two batches. When it its mixed in, add the flour and baking powder and mix it in quickly.
4. Pour into the molds and sprinkle cinnamon sugar. Bake for about 20 minutes at 180ºC♪ My oven is on the stronger side so I only bake for 18 minutes.
5. I didn't use baking powder in the cakes in the photo. I usually put the pot on the weighing scales and add in the ingredients one after the other!
6. I gave these to my mother as a gift.
7. I added amanatto sugared red beans in a pound cake mold. I baked the batter in a pound cake mold for 25 minutes. Check if it's finished after 30-40 minutes by sticking in a skewer!
8. I wrote that you need 300 g of sweet potatoes, but 250~300g is fine!
9. If you bake it in a poundcake mold, depending on the oven, it could take up to 40 minutes to bake!
10. "Yuichiki" made a pumpkin version! It has a mild flavor and is very delicious. Please try it ● Easy Pumpkin Cake ● Recipe ID: 1086496
