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.
