Expert Tips

If you want it creamier, use whipping cream instead of milk.

You can cook the sweet potatoes beforehand (1 to 2 days tops) and store it in an oven-proof container in the fridge.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Put the sweet potatoes into a big pot, cover with water and cook over low heat. The cooking process will take about 6-8 minutes once the water begins to boil. To know if the sweet potatoes are ready, poke them with a fork. If it you can easily pierce the sweet potatoes, then they’re ready.
  • 3 While the sweet potatoes cook, put the butter and sugar in a small pot over medium heat. Stir until the butter is melted and the sugar has dissolved.
  • 4 Empty the milk over sugar and butter, and stir until you get a smooth sauce. Add the rum, stir, turn off the heat and leave aside.
  • 5 Drain the water from the cooked sweet potatoes and use a bean masher to make a puree. Add the rum sauce and continue mashing until you get a smooth mix.
  • 6 Pour the puree into a greased baking dish. Sprinkle some brown sugar on top if you like.
  • 7 Bake for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
