sweet potato cupcakes

Is there anything quite as adorable as a 1 year old's birthday party? Little Nora's mama wanted her baby girl to have her favorite food for her birthday, so... we gave her sweet potatoes! And sharing is caring, so here are our results for you all. Enjoy!

 

1 c sweet potato puree, 2 roasted & mashed medium sweet potatoes

1 c oil

1 c sugar

3 eggs

1 c brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla 

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

2 c flour

 

Preheat over to 350º. 

 

In a large bowl, use a hand mixer and blend together oil and eggs until well mixed and fairly thickened. 

Add in sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder. Add in sweet potato puree and blend well.

Slowly add in flour by the 1/2 cup. Blend until combined, but do not over mix. 

Line a cupcake pan with liners. Fill each cup about 2/3 full of batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when insert.
