Here's the "heart" of this recipe - passing it through a strainer! At the time, I had no proper tools... so here's what I used! It took me about an hour!
The sweet potatoes are now really smooth. And tasty, too!!
Into a frying pan with melted butter, add sugar and the strained sweet potatoes in small batches. Knead. Now add heavy cream and vanilla extract, then continue to knead.
When everything is mixed together, turn the heat off and add the egg yolks. Mix thoroughly. Because you pressed the sweet potatoes through a strainer, the mixture is nice and smooth.
Pack the mixture into liners or molds. Smooth out the surface.
Brush on the egg yolks to add shine. Bake in a 180℃ oven until golden brown - voila!
Story Behind this Recipe
I received heaps of organic sweet potatoes as a gift. What's the best way to use up a large amount? It has to be baking! That's when I made these "Special Sweet Potatoes" Honestly, I was amazed when I took a bite! It's so smooth that it's almost like unbaked cheesecake!
The mixture will be incredibly smooth with a texture almost like an uncooked cheesecake. I was amazed!! Otherwise, imagine someone's happy expression after s/he takes a bite, and pray "get more tasty!" as you make these.
