I added cinnamon and clove to the batter. I also used currants though if I make this again, I would try cranberries. I didn't find it dry but only baked it for 30 minutes. If you shake the pan and it doesn't jiggle, it's cooked.
I eliminated the raisins, added sugar and cinn to custard. I cooked in custard dishes in a hot water bath for about 20-25 min. Creamy and delicious! You would never know this is "diet" food. Yum!
Mama always referred to sweet potatoe pie as a custard because of the way the filling was made. I make it the same way and this recipe is similar without the banana and raisins. Adding a 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of almond or rum extract would be good here too!
When you are asked to rate a recipe, rate it! Don't tell people what you added or subtracted, or substituted from the recipe. I am tired of people not following directions. JUST MAKE IT AND RATE THE RECIPE. WE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT HOW YOU MADE IT BETTER, WHAT YOU ADDED AND SO ON....
Both DH and I love sweet potato anything, but this just wasn't good. Strong banana taste and smell, and odd consistency. Definately will not make like this again. Maybe try without bananas again. I like bananas too, but the combo didn't work for us.
I made this with a 15 oz. can of Organic Sweet Potato Puree, added 2 eggs, 1/4 tsp. ginger and 1/2tsp. cinnamon to the mixture. Then ladled it into custard cups and microwaved at 50% power for about 23 minutes. Delicious and easy!
I'm gonna say this anyway: it sounds like it would be delicious. The problem I have with it is, you are taking 1 cup of potato and 1/2 of a banana and DIVIDING IT BETWEEN 6 PEOPLE! Come on now! Sweet potatoes are good for you, and so are bananas! I lost 6 pounds this past week & I had both!
