The Basic Fundamentals

 Blend the batter just until the ingredients are moistened for the fluffiest, lightest texture.

1 1/2 cups plain yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 Tbsp dark brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup cooked & mashed sweet potato
1 cup whole buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together the cornmeal, the flour, the brown sugar, the baking powder, the baking soda & the salt in a large bowl. Stir together the  sweet potato, the buttermilk, the melted butter & the egg & until blended; fold into the flour mixture just until blended. Coat 2 {24-cup} miniature muffin tins with cooking spray & portion the batter evenly between 36 cups. Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until a wooden pick tests clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pans & place on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

The Extra Point

Accompany these little gems with an array of seasonal soups & grain based salads.

How To Bake Sweet Potatoes

 Sweet potatoes are a drought tolerant crop that are grown in many southern states. Once harvested in the fall, they must be cured in a warm, humid environment to maximize the sugars then they can be stored long term in dry bins housed in a cool, humid environment up to 10 months before using. You may encounter a bin of sweet potatoes at your local market that range in size from 5-oz to 16-oz each. The main takeaway is to choose several vegetables of the same size for even baking in the oven. Use the recipe time as a guide as the true indicator of when they are fully cooked through is how the sweet potatoes gives when lightly pinched with your fingers or if they pierce easily with a fork.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Pierce several {1/2-lb} sweet potatoes with a fork. Place on a foil-lined half sheet pan. Bake 1 hour & 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft when lightly pressed. Increase the baking time accordingly if preparing larger potatoes.
