About this recipe: This is a deliciously fresh sweet potato pie that my family loves. The hardest part is peeling the sweet potatoes - after that, everything just gets blended. The rum and butter give it a richer flavour.


Serves: 8 

  • 400g cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml evaporated milk
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons rum
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 pastry case (or shortcrust pastry for 23cm pie)
