These super-tender, biscuits are sweet, so they go equally well with the sweet dishes of the holiday meal. The recipe originated in Malawi. However, this recipe makes large biscuits; feel free to cut them smaller.
- 180 grams’ mashed sweet potato.
- 60 millilitres milk.
- 4 tablespoons melted butter.
- 250 grams’ sifted flour.
- 2 teaspoons baking powder.
- 4 tablespoons sugar.
- ½ teaspoon salt.
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
Mix together the sweet potato, milk and melted butter. Blend well then add all the remaining ingredients. Bring together to form a dough then tip onto a floured surface, knead and roll out until it’s just over 1 cm thick.
Cut with a pastry cutter then place a well-greased baking tray. Place in an oven pre-heated to 160®C and bake for 35 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven, dust with icing sugar and set aside to dry.
