Condensed milk sweet potato cake

Condensed milk sweet potato cake

Here comes my top sweet favourites in a cakecondensed milk and sweet potato! This is one beautiful dessert that makes my day. This is just another little achievement of Keep Learning Keep Smiling. Trying out new things is always fun and exciting.

We were taught from young, “If there’s a will there’s a way”. It’s very true. Desires and passion drive you to achieve. Here, my craving (passion?) for condensed milk and sweet potato drives me into a creative mode many times. This condensed milk sweet potato cake is just another new creation and it is very delicious. It’s my new favourite. It doesn’t come with the texture of normal cake but I like the texture, the flavour and the taste.

Just in case you missed out, you can make your own condensed milk. Check out How To Make Condensed Milk. It’s very simple and easy to make. You can save a lot of money if you are a condensed milk lover or addict like me.

This recipe is very simple and easy….just mix everything and bake. Besides, it’s non-gluten. Sweet potato is high in fiber and good for health. So, this is a healthier cake.

400g cooked, mashed sweet potato
100g glutinous rice flour (or mochi flour)
400g condensed milk
200g coconut milk
4 eggs (beaten)
60g butter (melted)

Mashed sweet potato

Mix everything together. Pour into a baking paper lined tray and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 25-30 minutes. If you use a smaller or deeper tin, you will need longer time to bake this. I didn’t have time and I wanted it to cook faster so I used a lamington tin.

Cake well baked

Let cool before you cut. You can keep in the fridge and it still stays soft and delicious.

I’m first, can i have a pc?

kristy  on April 9th, 2010

Wow, sounds really delicious! The cake looks quite rich and packed with flavours.

Priya  on April 9th, 2010

Wat a gorgeous and fantastic cake, never tried anything with glutinous rice flour, should get a pack soon, tempting and delicious cake!

Shirley  on April 9th, 2010

All my favourite ingredients! Do you think it would work with regular rice flour? We dont get the glutinous variety here.

Sushma Mallya  on April 9th, 2010

wow what an innovative idea for making a cake, looks awesome mary…

Arnold  on April 9th, 2010

Now that looks interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Mary  on April 9th, 2010

@somewhere in singapore - Yeah…you are the first this time…high5! :D Come, and I’ll make a big one for you. One piece is definitely not enough!

@kristy - It is! If I’m not worried about my waistline, I’ll eat the whole cake…haha :D

@Priya - Give a try. I really like it. I have just bought a packet of sweet potatoes again. Very tempted to make this again :D

@Shirley - I have not tried with rice flour. Give a try. I think it should work but with a slightly different texture. The flavour from the sweet potato and condensed milk will still be there. I would love to try that next time :D

@Sushma Mallya - Thanks very much, Sushma! :D Hope I’ll have more sweet potato and condensed milk recipes to share.

@Arnold - Thanks very much, Arnold! :D

Yum! All my favourite ingredients. I love condensed milk.

deana@lostpastremembered  on April 9th, 2010

I have never heard of this dessert… looks so easy and snackable… I really need to get some condensed milk!!

anncoo  on April 9th, 2010

Mmm…look at that color, so pretty! I seldom use condensed milk only in non bake cheesecake. Must learn from you to make condensed milk and make your recipes.

Divina  on April 9th, 2010

Love this dessert. Sweet potato, coconut milk and condensed milk!! I think you should start writing a cookbook for sweet potatoes. :)

rebecca  on April 9th, 2010

this is a Mary Special love it

Tangled Noodle  on April 9th, 2010

I love sweet potatoes and sweetened condensed milk, but together they make a wondrous dessert! With the mochi flour in the recipe, I know this has the kind of texture that I love.

Kristi Rimkus  on April 9th, 2010

I so agree! Trying new things is what keeps cooking exciting. I don’t bake often, but this looks like a recipe I could handle. I have everything I need except the coconut milk. I wonder if light coconut milk would work?

Mary  on April 9th, 2010

@Yen - Then I’m sure you’ll like this one like me :D

@deana@lostpastremembered - Give a try. Have fun baking :D

@anncoo - I must check out your cheesecake using condensed milk. I know I’m going to fall in love with that :D

@Divina - Haha…..Divina, that’s hugely flatteringly encouraging! :D I’ll bear that in mind….great idea :D

@rebecca - Yeah…My Special…love it! :D

@Tangled Noodle - We have similar taste….yeah! :D

@Kristi Rimkus - Give a try, Kristi. I think it should work. Only the flavour may be slightly different. I never use light coconut milk. Well, it may come out as a new recipe :D I would love to know.

lequan@luvtoeat  on April 9th, 2010

Oh Mary have I told you how much I love your blog and recipes!? Once I read this title I was so excited to keep reading. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat. They’re so simple yet so delicious and they add such beautiful vibrant colour to dishes. When I was a kid I used to just eat condensed milk between to slices of bread and that would satisfy me. Now you have come up with a recipe with two of my most favorite things to eat. I am not a good baker but you are tempting me to try this out. Thank you so much for this recipe and most of all for having such an awesome blog :-D

Conor @ HoldtheBeef  on April 9th, 2010

Oh god I had to laugh when I saw this post, it is you in a nutshell, hehe! :)

Mimi  on April 9th, 2010

What a creative cake, these are two of my favorite too.

Mary  on April 9th, 2010

What a lovely cake. I’m always amazed when a handful of ingredients produces something this lovely and delicious. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

Would be trying this cake out. I love the use of condense milk and coconut milk in my dessert and cooking. Have a wonderful weekend!

How clever of you to combine your favourite flavours together. The cake sounds divine.
I am not so creative - usually I just bake sweet potato wedges with sesame oil and olive oil.

The Kitchen Masochist  on April 11th, 2010

How creative! I have to admit though that I’ve never tried sweet potoatoes with condensed milk.

Judging from the ingredients, I imagine this creation of yours would have a similar taste and texture to those Malay kuihs.

I love the color! :)
