Sweet Potato Pudding

Man oh man is sweet potato pudding good. And easy! Oh, and packed with Vitamin A (and probably a few calories thanks to the brown sugar, but life is short)!

3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
3/4 pound dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ cup cornmeal
1 cup raisins
1-2 cups water or coconut water
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ cup dark rum (optional)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl, mix well, and pour into lightly greased 11 x 7 baking pan. Cover lightly with foil and bake 1 hour. Remove foil and bake 15 minutes until browned.

Just made this - Far too watery! Any ideas? I cooked it for another 30 minutes, too.

Hi Rich,

I think the last time I made this was in 2008, so I don't actually recall the recipe, though I wouldn't have posted it if it hadn't tasted good or worked for me (it's not one I made up myself, it's one I adapted, but I can't recall where I saw the original. That said In my original post it said 5 cups of water, and I'm wondering if that was a typo as it does seem high to me now. Maybe try with 1-2 cups of liquid instead to see if it's less watery. I'm sorry about that!
