OOPS! I missed it! I prepared this dish for the Caribbean event that was Going "ON" in Meeta's Blog, thinking the cut-off is until this month end! But, noticed today that it is already over!
Anyways, its OK! Here's the recipe...

  • Sweet potato - 1 big or 2 small ones
  • Coconut - 1 cup, shredded
  • Whole milk - 1/2 cup
  • Light Brown sugar - 1 cup ( The original recipe called for the Dark one)
  • Ginger - 1 inch piece, shredded
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Butter - 2 tbsp, softened
  • Raisins and Craisins - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1/2 cup Luke warm

How to make it:

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash, Peel and Grate sweet potato. Combine sweet potato, milk, brown sugar and spices. Add butter, water, coconut and raisins. Mix well. Pour into a greased baking pan and bake for about 1 hour or until it gets firm at the center. Serve!
