Sweet potato sponge cake

Hello,

In Catalonia is very typical to see small stands on the street selling roasted chestnuts and sweet potatos when Halloween it’s getting close. In fact Halloween for us in the “chestnut day” and it is very typical to eat roasted chestnuts often also with sweet potatoes and with a special sweet wine called Moscatel (Muscat). But as long as I really like sweet potatos, I like to try another ways to eat them besides roasted. So I experimented time ago trying to use the sweet potato in a sponge cake with really nice results, and I come to you today with this recipe. And perhaps you can replace sweet potato with pumpkin, for a halloween sweet recipe 🙂

Ingredients:

In a big bowl let’s add 350 gr of flour, passed through a colander, one baking powder envelope, 200 gr of sugar, 100 gr of olive oil or vegetable oil, 200 gr of milk, 4 eggs, grate some lemon skin (try to grate only the yellow part, as the white one is bitter) and finally peel a sweet potato, grate it and add to the bowl.

Now whisk everything for some minutes until it’s well combined.

Use a bit of butter to grease the mold you will use to bake the sponge cake. Empty the bowl in the mold and cook in the oven at 350 F (180 C) for 30 minutes, let cold and it’s ready to eat.
