Wednesday Recipes--'Cause We Need Something Sweet to Make It Through The Week: Sweet Potato Muffins

The story behind this recipe: I served this several weeks ago at church fellowship hall and this recipe made a lot. So, I took some extras to school. My secretary and cleaning lady raved over them--one student said they were the best things she'd eaten on campus (of course, I may only be competing with the cafeteria but still :).




Sweet Potato Nut Bread (and Muffins—or just muffins!)


Ingredients:


½ cup soft butter

½ cup shortening

2 2/3 cup sugar

4 eggs

2 cups cold, mashed sweet potatoes (I bake two sweet potatoes the night before until soft, then peel and mash, refrigerate overnight)

3 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 ½ teaspoon nutmeg

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 cup chopped walnuts

2/3 cup cold, strong black coffee (yes, coffee—you don’t taste the flavor, just makes them so very fluffy)


Instructions:

1.     Cream butter, shortening, and sugar.

2.     Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Blend in sweet potatoes.

3.     Sift together dry ingredients; add nuts. Stir into creamed mixture alternately with cold

coffee.

4.     Pour batter into 2 greased 9x5x3” loaf pans and 8 greased muffin-pan cups OR just make muffins. If you’re only making muffins, expect about 3 dozen—great for a crowd or to share with friends and neighbors. Also, use silicone muffin cups and avoid having to grease all those muffin tins!

5.      I added my own person touch—sprinkle the tops with a pinch of cinnamon sugar each (1/2 cup sugar to ½ teaspoon cinnamon).

6.      Bake at 375 degrees 1 hour for loaves or 25 minutes for muffins (or until they test done in the center with a toothpick).

7.      Cool before removing from pans.


This recipe also comes from my Farm Journal cookbook--I'm working my way through the whole thing! Blessings to all and to all a great week!
