Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes


  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prick the potatoes with a fork several times each and place them directly on the oven rack (I'd advise putting a cookie sheet below to catch the bubbling juices that came spewing out of mine - mmm, spewing juices. Hungry?). Let bake for 45 minutes and remove from oven. Cut potatoes open and scoop insides out into a bowl. Mash with all other ingredients. Eat as quickly as possible. Invite Kristi over to eat them with you as she will rave about them and you will feel very very good about yourself.
