Sweet Potato Pudding
1-2 large cans evaporated milk
4-5 cups freshly grated, peeled, raw sweet potatoes
4 large eggs
2 sticks butter or margarine, melted
1-2 whole nutmegs, freshly grated
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1-2 cups granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons lemon extract
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 cups plain flour
As the potatoes are grated, stir them into the milk which has been poured
into a large mixing bowl. (This prevents darkening of the potatoes.) Mix in
by the cupfuls to make track-keeping easier. Sift in the flour and mix well.
Thoroughly whisk in the remaining ingredients and pour into greased,
shallow, pan or oven-proof dish.
Bake until edges are dark and center of pudding is set. Check for doneness
by digging in slightly with a spoon. If not done, smooth over and continue
cooking and checking occasionally.
Serve hot, warm or cold.
Comments: Smells good enough to eat even before it is put in the oven and it makes the kitchen smell heavenly as it bakes! Well worth ignoring calories
