Whipped sweet potato bake

    1 hour 10 min

    A deliciously sweet side dish that is Kosher for Passover, but easily enjoyed anytime. Mashed sweet potatoes are beaten with brown sugar and aromatic spices, then topped with matzo crumbs and baked to perfection.

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Place the sweet potatoes into a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Gently boil over medium-low heat until tender, 15 to 25 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes, peel and mash in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the sweet potatoes until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
    3. Beat in margarine, dark brown soft sugar, orange juice, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and egg. Spread the mixture into a 23x33cm or similar sized baking dish.
    4. In a bowl, mix the crushed matzo, 110g margarine, 4 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar and 1 pinch cinnamon. Spread the topping evenly over the sweet potato mixture.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until the topping is golden and bubbling, about 30 minutes. If the topping needs more browning, grill until darker, about 3 minutes.

    Everyone liked this! I didn't do the topping exactly as written only because I didn't want to add another 1/2 cup of margarine to the dish. But I got many compliments.  -  21 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
