Sweet potato and raisin muffins

This recipe comes form Carol Pastor cookbook '75 best - ever muffins'. I baked them as I was really curious about their taste. Potato in a muffin ?  Hmmm... But they were tasty, not extremely delicious but just ok. Day after their taste reminded me about doughnuts. For those who want to try recipe and method below:

Ingredients for 12-18 muffins:
  • 225g sweet potato
  • 350g flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 225g margarine melted
  • 250 ml milk
  • 50g raisins
  • 50g caster sugar
  • icing sugar for dusting
Peel off the potato skin dice the potato into smaller pieces and cook in the boiling water until very tender then mash and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 220C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Melt the margarine stir in the milk and set aside.
When the potato mashed is slightly cooler add the flour, baking powder and combine together. Pour into this mixture milk and margarine and add whisked egg. Whisk everything together just to combine all ingredients. At last but not at least gently fold in the raisins and sugar.

Spoon the batter into paper cases up to the top. Bake for 25 minutes until well risen and brown on the top. After baking leave to cool in baking tin then transfer to the wire rack. Dust with icing sugar and enjoy !
