Sweet Potato Muffin with Walnuts


Sweet potato, this sweet vegetable loaded with many good nutrients, is in season now.  Last weekend, we went to a Sweet Potato Festival in the adjacent town, of cause we have to bring home some freshly picked sweet potatoes.  After having roasted and boiled sweet potatoes, I decide to make some muffins out of it, for a change.

Ingredients for Sweet Potato Muffin with Walnuts:
1. 1/2 cup cake flour
2. 1/2 cup self-rising flour
3. 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
4. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
5. 1/8 teaspoon salt
6. 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
7. 2 eggs
8. 3/4 cup sugar
9. 3/4 cup cooking oil
9. 1-1/2 cups meshed sweet potato
10. 2 tablespoons honey
11. 1/2 cup raisin
12. 3/4 cup chopped walnuts

1. Combine item 1 through 6 in a bowl, sift and set aside.
2. Beat eggs and sugar, until the egg mixture becomes creamy white.
3. Alternate adding in the cooking oil and the sifted dry ingredients.  Mix well after each addition.
4. Mix meshed sweet potato and honey well with a pastry blender.  Add the sweet potato in to the batter and mix well.

5. Add raisin and ½ cup walnut, mix well.  Using a big scoop to fill the batter into the muffin pan lined with cupcake liners.  Add more pieces of walnut on each muffin batter.

6. Bake in the preheated oven at 350 degree for 25 minutes, or when the muffins turn light brown and the toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Enjoy the yummy Sweet Potato Muffins!
