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!
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!
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'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!
