Skillet Sweet Potato Pudding Recipe


Looking for an authentic “soul food” dessert to serve on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day? Skillet Sweet Potato Pudding is easy to make, and is perfect to serve on this holiday which is always celebrated on the third Monday in January. This pudding is rich and dense, so only a little is needed to satisfy any sweet tooth. And although it would never be considered health food, it actually contains protein, fiber, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C; not a bad thing for a delicious dessert – every little bit helps.
””
Of course in the South, soul food is served daily because it’s so good, so this wonderful, old fashioned dessert shouldn’t be set aside just for the MLK, Jr. holiday; it is great served throughout the entire year and is a perfect ending to any Southern meal.

12 Servings

2/3 cup butter

1 1/4 pounds sweet potatoes, finely grated (4 cups packed)
1/2 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Grated rind of 1 orange
1 cup milk

1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup flaked coconut

Sweetened whipped cream, or ice cream.
  1. Melt the butter in a 10" cast-iron (or other very heavy) skillet.

  2. Mix the sweet potatoes, molasses, brown sugar, eggs, flour, spices, and orange rind; stir in the milk.

  3. Pour the mixture into the melted butter and stir.

  4. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender and the mixture is very thick.

  5. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°.

  6. Sprinkle the pecans and coconut over the top of the pudding.

  7. Bake 10-15 minutes or until bubbly and the coconut and nuts have toasted.

  8. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
