Ingredients

Number of serving: 6
2 sweet potatoes, about 1 lb total weight

1 cup fine-grind yellow cornmeal

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1teaspoon salt

pinch of ground allspice

pinch of ground cinnamon

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preparation

  • Bring a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat, add the sweet potatoes, and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain thoroughly.
  • Transfer to a food processor and pulse until slightly fluffy. Scrape into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, allspice, and cinnamon. Stir well.
  • Add the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter to the sweet potatoes and mix well. Then add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined, taking care not to overmix. The batter should be slightly lumpy. Pour into the prepared pan.
  • Bake until the top is golden brown and the bread pulls away from the pan sides, 30-35 minutes. Place the pan on a rack to cool slightly or completely. Cut into squares to serve.
