Howdy? It’s Mr. Wada on duty. What do you have with your drink? Cookies? Cakes? Pies? There are varieties of food at cafes but at home I suppose you just buy something and grab right? Lemme tell you about my favorite tea-time snack lately. It is called SWEET POTATO CAKE…ordinary? Hmp! But but…can you believe that you can make it in a half hour!!?? Here’s a recipe of an easy homemade tea snack.
You need only two things. Sweet potatoes and ICE CREAM!
For four (4) servings – two medium size sweet potatoes (in the photo I’ve got 5 small ones) – two scoops of vanilla ice cream Options(I’ll mention it later) – rum – beaten egg yolk
Why Ice Cream?
What normally requires for making sweet potato cakes (other than sweet potatoes) are cream/milk and sugar which ice cream contains all! It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
5 Steps for Making Sweet Potato Cakes
Peel sweet potatoes, chop them in dice.
Microwave the chopped sweet potatoes for about 5 minutes until it gets cooked. I use this plastic container for microwaving (it comes with a cover). Or you can just have them in a bowl/plate, wrap by saran wrap and microwave.
By the way, microwave cooking has been sorta trend in Japan last several years (it’s been a while though). There are many items like this. I may show you more recipes using this method another time.
Take the sweet potatoes out and now mush them! And here comes ice cream. Mix them well.
Note: A few drops of rum would give it a great flavor. Got one in your kitchen? Then give it a try.
Grab some of the mashed sweet potatoes and form it as sweet potato cakes. Its shape should be like the one below but you can shape it any way as you like. It won’t differ its taste anyway.
Note: Spreading beaten egg yolk over the sweet potato cakes would make it shiny (not a must but it’d look nicer with this).
It’s ready to be cooked. Throw them into the toaster. It’s an ordinary toaster that I use every morning. Toast for 10 minutes.
Looking good, don’t you think?
Bon appetit con tus coffee! (oui) Please try this homemade tea snack and lemme know how you find it. Can’t wait to have it! See you around. Related links
