Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes

I love to bake.  I haven’t baked in awhile, so I decided to make dessert for Thanksgiving last week.  I got the recipe at How Sweet It Is.

I boiled a sweet potato and turned it into a smooth mashed potato in the food processor.

It was time to crush the graham crackers.  I put a few graham crackers into a Ziploc bag.  At first, I was getting my frustrations out by crushing it with my hand.  This was taking too long, so I grabbed a wooden spoon which made the job a lot easier.  I mixed the graham crackers with the melted butter and sugar.

I put the crushed graham crackers mix (I used 1 1/2 tablespoons) on the bottle of the cupcake liners creating a tasty crust.

I whisked together the rest of the ingredients making a lovely sweet potato cupcake batter.  What a lovely color!

I put in about 1/4 cup of the batter in each cupcake and then popped it into the oven.

I mixed up the marshmallow frosting which is super sweet.

The cupcakes turned out great.

They’re sweet and moist which I think every cupcake should be.  It shouldn’t need a frosting to make it good.  The frosting makes it even better.  I eat the cupcake without the frosting since I know how much sugar is in that frosting! George loves these cupcakes.  He loves sweets.

    I’d like to make these as a surprise for my nephew. He always says he doesn’t like sweet potatoes, so I wouldn’t tell him what’s in them until after he eats them.
