Sweet potato cupcakes
Sweet potato cupcakes on Boxing Day! A new tradition? Perhaps. Craving cupcakes and sweet potato, I searched the internet for recipes and chose bakerella's "Not your kid's cupcake" recipe, prepared without the bourbon.
I halved the recipe which yielded nine medium-sized cupcakes. Also, I used canned sweet potato puree (organic) instead of whole potatoes. I used 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ginger, and about 1/4 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg as I did not have pumpkin spice. I topped them with a frosting of equal parts cream cheese (2 oz) and butter sweetened with about a 1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar. No pretty pictures to share with you, sorry, but the cupcakes are delicious!
