Sweet Potato bread


4 pounds of sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
2˝ cups light brown sugar (azúcar crema)
10 +/- sticks of cinnamon (ground cinnamon can substitute)
1 can of coconut milk (13.5 oz)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon lime zest (optional)
1 can evaporated milk or regular milk
Grated ginger or ginger powder (to taste; add carefully)
Pinch of salt.


1. Peel and grate sweet potatoes. Boil the coconut milk, evaporated milk and cinnamon, the ginger, butter and light brown sugar (azúcar crema).

2. To this mixture, first add the grated mass of sweet potatoes and then the lime zest. Move the mass around and stir so that it is not too sticky nor too dry.

3. Bake it in the oven in a pre-greased baking mold of your preference for 1 hour at 350°F.

Notes: Remember that the azúcar crema will give it a more rustic flavor. Milk can be regular or evaporated. Be careful with the ginger because too much ginger can make it bitter. In addition to cinnamon, you can also use ground cloves (optional).

Sweet Potato Pone: Sweet Potato Pudding [Vegan, Grain-Free]

Sweet potato pone, which is also popularly known as the potato pound of Belize, is a traditional dessert from Belize that consists of grated sweet potato, raisins, milk, cinnamon, and ginger. The texture is very similar to bread pudding, but in this recipe, sweet potato takes the place of bread as the starch that soaks up all the wonderful flavors.

  • 6 cups grated sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon of oil or vegan butter

Preheat the oven to 450°F and grease a 9×13-inch rectangular baking dish.

In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, raisin, ginger, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla.

Add milk and oil/butter and stir well to incorporate. Pour the mixture into the dish.

Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 30 minutes and then lower the oven to 350°F. Move the dish to the top shelf and bake for an additional hour or until the top turns golden brown.
