Sweet Pototo Cornbread

I love cornbread this time of year!  I searched and searched for a recipe that included everything I had in the house.  It was near impossible, so I made my own recipe.  Below is the final recipe I came up with.  Enjoy!!!

Prep Time: 20 min

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons of butter 
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of honey (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf tin with cooking spray.
  • Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Peel sweet potato and chop into large pieces. Boil until tender. Drain and mash. Add melted butter, milk, and egg and stir to combine.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until a dough forms.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from pan.

For this recipe, I used sweet potato that I oven baked and pureed in a blender.  It works that same as boiling and mashing the sweet potato.
