I am completely convinced that you can get your home smelling like Thanksgiving in twenty minutes.
Heat up your oven to 350 degrees, pop in three or four sweet potatoes on a baking sheet (properly wash them and poke holes in them of course), light a pumpkin or cinnamon candle, and there you have it!
I love to create ambiance in my home, a sense of belonging and warmth. For me that has always been accomplished through food, candles, and music. This recipe evokes warm memories of my childhood visiting my Mema and Pepa in North Carolina for Thanksgiving. The warm spiced aromas of sweet potatoes and cinnamon take me there every time.
So… To grandmother’s house we go! I promise you’ll love it!! Please do yourself a favor and buy an autumn candle. They’re 40% off at Hobby Lobby right now!
For this recipe you will need:
3 baked sweet potatoes
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
To bake your sweet potatoes simply line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, wash your potatoes, and poke holes in them with a fork. Place them on your baking sheet and bake in the oven for approximately 45 minutes to an hour (or whenever the centers of the potatoes are soft).
Peel your potatoes, and combine the mash with your salt, cinnamon, maple syrup, eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla.
Use a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid and whip up your mixture until it takes on a light, aerated consistency.
Pour mixture into a greased pie pan, and bake for 40 minutes.
Your house, at this point, should smell absolutely divine.
This souffle really is served best on days when you need a reason to smile. It doesn’t have to be a holiday or special occasion to make a special meal for your loved ones! Enjoy!
