Talk about sweet potato, I just become happy and alive. I think my house never run out of it. Sweet potato is a very nutritious vegetable and very delicious no matter how you cook it. It’s complex carbohydrate, high in fibre and very good for health.
I always boil or bake the sweet potatoes but every now and then I love to make desserts out of it. They are very delicious and healthier than many other cakes. This time I tried to add carrots and walnuts to it for extra nutrients and delicacy. The cake came out moist, dense and very delicious.
This recipe is simple and quick. If you use a low tin, it bakes fast. That’s what I usually do.
3 eggs (beaten)
1/2C walnuts (chopped)
Put butter and sugar in a medium sized cooking pot and melt under low heat. Remove from heat once it’s all melted. Add the walnuts and beaten eggs to the butter mixture.
100g grated sweet potato
100g grated carrots
1 C self-raising flour
1t vanilla essence
Add flour to the mixture in Ingredients A above and mix well. Finally add the grated sweet potato and carrots and mix. Pour into a lined lamington tin and bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. It’s cooked when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. If you make it thick, it will take longer time. Let cool, cut and enjoy. I love it just as it is with a cup of tea. I’m sure it would be very delicious too with cream cheese frosting or ice cream.
