Ingredients

Units Scale

Whipped Sweet Potato Base

  • 4 large sweet potatoes (about 3 lbs or 1.5 kg)
  • 1 stick of butter (113 grams or 4 ounces)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Walnut or Pecan Topping

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 stick of butter (113 grams or 4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop sweet potatoes. Boil on the stovetop until tender.
  2. Drain sweet potatoes and add to a mixing bowl. Allow sweet potatoes to cool so the eggs don't curdle when mixed in.
  3. Add 1 stick of melted butter, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup milk, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth. If needed, you can add more milk depending on the consistency of the sweet potato mixture. Pour the whipped sweet potato mixture into a 9" x 13" baking dish.
  4. Make the walnut topping: Add 1 stick of melted butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 cups of shredded coconut flakes, 1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans or walnuts to a bowl. Mix completely. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the sweet potato layer.
  5. Bake at 350 ℉ (177 ℃) for about 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Cut and serve.

Notes

  1. Pecan can be used in place of walnuts.
  2. The butter can be cut in half if wanting to lighten this up.
