Ingredients

For the recipe  Spiced Sweet Potato Muffins

all-in-one:

Sweet Potatoes x 2
220 g Wholemeal Plain Flour
2 Dr. Oetker Baking Powder Sachets x 2 sachets (2 tsp)
55 g Light Brown Sugar
4 g Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
4 g Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp)
2 g Chinese Five Spice (1/4 tsp)
2 g Salt (a pinch)
30 g Sunflower Oil (Or Coconut Oil) (2 tbsp)
30 ml Greek Yoghurt (2 tbsp)
4 ml Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp)
1 Medium Egg

preparation

Preparation

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F).

Step 2: First, cook the sweet potatoes in a microwave until soft, turning every few minutes – this will take approx 9 minutes. When cooked, cut them in half, and set aside to cool.

Step 3: Meanwhile, combine the wholemeal flour, Baking Powder, light brown sugar, spices, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Mix well.

Step 4: When the sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh, and add it to a separate bowl. Mash thoroughly, and add the melted coconut oil, egg, Greek yogurt, and Madagascan Vanilla Extract. Mix well.

Step 5: Combine the wet and dry ingredients, and carefully mix until well combined.

Step 6: Place 10 muffin cases in a muffin tray, and lightly brush them with oil. Divide the muffin mixture evenly between the 10 cases.

Step 7: Bake for around 35 minutes, until fairly firm, and browned on top. Leave to cool on a rack before serving.

Top Tip 1. If you don't have a microwave or prefer not to use one, cook the whole sweet potatoes in a steamer. When they're soft, cut them open, and leave them to cool - this allows any moisture to evaporate.

Top Tip 2. Make sure you mash the sweet potato very thoroughly, so that it cooks right into the muffins without any lumps.
