A Family Recipe

Nope – not the kind the Baldwin sisters used to make on The Waltons.

Sweet Potato Muffins

These have been a family favorite for years. Do NOT tell children that they’re sweet potatoes until they’ve eaten them. Kids devour the mini ones like candy.

I have no clue for a carb count but it should be simple to figure out.

2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon mace
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2-3/4 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato (I just buy the large can and mash what I need.)
1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 16-18 muffin tins. Combine dry ingredients: add egg, milk, oil and sweet potato. Mix gently and fill muffin tins two-thirds full. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until the center springs back when touched lightly.

Note: These can also be made as miniature muffins. Reduce baking time to 10-12 minutes.

    Those look good. I wonder how they would come out with the gluten free Bisquick.

  2. This is great! Thank you for the idea. Hope my kids will enjoy it, too. I’m liking it already.
