Sweet Potato Pudding Cake

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (59 votes)

This cake was inspired by the one of the most popular Jamaican desserts, sweet potato pudding. Traditionally, raw shredded sweet potatoes are used, but we found that sweet potatoes sold in the U.S. don’t provide the same texture as those in Jamaica. Instead, we mix mashed sweet potato with eggs and flour to get a slightly different, but equally delicious, cheesecake-like result.

This is a great recipe! The cake has a texture similar to a dense bread pudding. It was so delicious--we just finished it and we're already thinking up excuses to make another.


I soaked the raisins in dark rum for 30 minutes. Fantastic recipe and my husband now wants this instead of chocolate cake!
