Sweet Potato Pudding

Comment on this recipe

My Godson, Zachary, loves sweet potatoes and anything I can make with them, he devours it. This is different from sweet potato casserole.

Ingredients

2 eggs, separated, room temperature
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash ground ginger
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes

Instructions

In a medium mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Beat yolks in a separate bowl. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar; add well-beaten egg yolks, milk, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and sweet potatoes. Fold in beaten egg whites. Turn mixture into a buttered 1 1/2-quart casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with cream or a caramel sauce.
