Sweet Potato Pie


One of the American classic pies is Sweet Potato Pie. It is similar in many ways to Pumpkin Pie, but has its own unique qualities. Sweet Potatoes are also generally easier to access in the UK outside of Autumn. The pie is relatively easy to make and has approximately 445 calories in a 1/6 pie slice (or 223 if you are going with the 12 slice approach).

Ingredients:

  • Pie Crust  9 inch
  • Sweet Potato  450 g/ 1 lb
  • Condensed Milk  397 g/ 14 ounce can
  • Butter 60 g/ 1/4 cup
  • Eggs  2
  • Ground Cinnamon 1 tsp
  • Ground Nutmeg 1 tsp
  • Marmalade 3 Tbs

Method:

Prepare pie crust and set aside.  Then prepare 16 ounces of sweet potato by boiling (approximately 50 minutes if doing a whole potato) or baking (about 80 minutes at 200C/ 390 F).   Preheat oven (if using boiling method) to 175 C/ 350 F).  When potato is ready peel and place flesh on a large mixing bowl along with softened butter, eggs, and spices.  Mash together then add marmalade and condensed milk.  Blend well with a hind mixer until smooth.  Pour mixture into pie crust and bake on middle shelf for approximately 40 minutes or until nicely golden.  Remove from oven and let cool (or chill) before serving.
