There’s more to the humble sweet potato than mash and slap chips. Thanks to its earthy, sweet flavour, it is perfect addition to cakes and bakes. Not only is it a great way to add more fibre and nutrients to baked goods, it also means you can reduce the amount of sugar used in traditional recipes.
Talk about a versatile vegetable!

It’s still full of the traditional flavours you know and love, just a little bit different. Plus, using sweet potato in a malva pudding means you can reduce the amount of sugar.
