800g sweet potatoes
200ml hot milk
1 tbsp maple syrup
Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.
Cook the sweet potatoes in salted water for around 30 minutes. Then peel them, add the milk, syrup and butter and mash until creamy. If necessary add a little more milk.
Season with salt, lemon juice and ground black pepper to taste.
