Vegan Carribean Sweet Potato Pudding

BM #77 Week 1 Day 2 - 
The moment I thought of vegan pudding, I had a vision of sweet potatoes. So I looked up sweet potato desserts and I found this vegan pudding which got me hooked instantly.

I thought what is there not to like in it, sweet potatoes, coconut milk and spices, right? I best part of this pudding was that there was almost negligible amount of baby siting needed for it. Though the pudding took more than an hour to get ready.

My little one and I loved it when it was warm and I got to share it with friends as well.

Recipe Adapted from here
Ingredients - 

*Sweet Potato peeled, and grated 1 lb (3 cups)

Cinnamon Powder 1/2 tsp
Nutmeg Powder a dash

Vegan Carribean Sweet Potato Pudding

Method Of Preparation -

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Grease a 6-7 inch pan ( I had a square pan of that size) and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients (not the toppings) to make a thick mixture.

Pour the mixture into the greased pan and smooth the top.

Bake for about 45 minutes. I saw that the top was dry and cracks were visible. Remove from oven.

In another bowl, whisk together the topping ingredients and pour on the baked pudding.

Put it back into the oven for another 30 minutes until the top is golden brown and the kitchen is filled with the aroma of cinnamon.

Remove from oven, allow it to cool, slice as needed and serve it warm.
