  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 11/3 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • 11/2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugared walnuts (see below)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (optional)



Step 1

For the Muffins:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease or spray a 12-cup muffin tin. Cream the butter and the sugar, add eggs, and beat. Add the cooked, mashed sweet potatoes. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add gradually to creamed mixture, alternating with milk. End with dry ingredients. Do not overmix; batter should be lumpy. Fill muffin tins to 2/3 full. Sprinkle batter with sugared walnuts and top each filled cup with 1teaspoon brown sugar, if desired. Bake 20 to 23 minutes.

For the Sugared Walnuts:

Place 1 cup chopped walnut pieces and 3 tablespoons sugar in a 9-inch nonstick skillet over

medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and walnuts start to caramelize.
