  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs


Prepare the Sweet Potatoes

Start by cooking and mashing the sweet potatoes. You can steam or bake them until tender, then mash them into a smooth consistency.

Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish or a cast-iron skillet with butter or cooking spray.

Mix the Dry Ingredients

In a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Mix well until all the dry ingredients are evenly incorporated.

Incorporate Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed sweet potatoes, milk, melted butter, and eggs until well combined.

Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures

Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

Transfer to Baking Dish

Pour the batter into the greased baking dish or cast-iron skillet, spreading it out evenly.


Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool and Serve

Allow the sweet potato cornbread to cool slightly before cutting into slices. Serve warm with a pat of butter or alongside your favorite dishes.

How unkind of me.

Well, here’s a savory one to whet your appetite!

Clearly, I don’t discriminate when it comes to seasonality of sweet potatoes. Hey, I don’t buy berries, zucchini, or tomatoes during the winter, and I rarely buy apples or pears during the summer, so please allow me this one out-of-season food, alright?

Thanks :).
