    I made this again without white sugar or salt and used egg whites instead of yolks. I cut the milk to 3/4 cup. It cut the cals by almost 1/2 and the fat down to 0.3 g. It tasted just as wonderful!!! YUMMY! I don't feel so guilty eating two servings! - 1/25/08

    I'm eating it right now. I left out the brown sugar and added one little packet of stevia and 3/4c. of soy milk and it was perfect. I used egg white only . I added half the raisins and a little cinnamon on top. It is delicious. - 2/18/09

    I am a sweetpotato enthusiast & enjoy custard. This makes a great breakfast or snack. I ve made it w/out banana, substituted milk for the evaporated, used whole eggs, & sugar substitute. Tastes great everytime! Also works well in microwave. Did you know you can microwave sweet potatoes? Saves time. - 3/17/07
