Honey-Flavoured Sweet Potato Dessert

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 30 grams butter (doesn’t have to be unsalted)
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rum
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp water (for mixing with the egg yolk)


  • Peel the sweet potato, and cut into 1 cm thick slices, then soak in water to remove any bitterness.
  • Cook in boiling water for about 15 minutes. (When a bamboo skewer can go through, it’s ready.)
  • Drain the water, and mash the sweet potato with a masher.
  • When the potato is mashed into small pieces, add the butter while it’s still hot, and mix.
  • Combine the honey and milk.
  • Add the Step 5 mixture into the bowl with the sweet potato and mix.
  • Add the rum and mix some more.
  • Make your preferred shapes, and place them on parchment paper.
  • Brush the egg yolk mixture (1 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water) with a spoon.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 180°C. Then remove from the oven.
  • While it’s still hot, brush with the egg mixture one more time.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 200°C until the surface turns golden brown, and you’re done.
