About this recipe: Sweet potatoes are cooked until soft and mashed with softened apples that have been flavoured with cinnamon and allspice. Sometimes I use different spices, such as nutmeg and cloves.


Serves: 6 

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 50g caster sugar, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons milk

  1. Place the sweet potato in a medium saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
  2. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the apple slices, cover and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Mix the apple mixture into the drained sweet potatoes along with the milk. Mix well with a fork until potatoes are mashed.
