I re-wrote this opening sentence a few times. How do you introduce yourself to readers who don´t know you at all? How do you break the ice? Answer: there´s no easy way to do it BUT to simply say “Hi there! Johlene here from the blog Flavours & Frosting, where I blog about anything and everything DESSERTS”. (I hope that wasn´t too bad…ha!)
Ok so these Mini Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Puddings are simply delicious! They´re made of a sweet potato pudding mix, and topped with a brown sugar and pecan topping that becomes a lava of ooey gooye caramely goodness!
These mini puddings are the perfect Fall dessert..
- they´re easy to make,
- they taste amazing and
- they´re easy to serve! What more do you want from a dessert…. 🙂
RECIPE: Mini Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Pudding
(this recipe is based on this pumpkin pie cobbler recipe by Laurens Latest)
Sweet Potato Pudding:
1 cup + 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
0.75 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
0.75 cup sweet potato puree
0.25 cup milk
5.25 cup melted butter or vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pecan Brown Sugar Topping:
1 cup brown sugar
0.5 cup chopped pecans
1.5 cups very hot water
- Preheat your oven to 35oºF/175ºC.
- In a medium sized bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar and pumpkin spice. Set to the side.
- In a smaller bowl, stir sweet potato, milk, melted butter and vanilla together to combine.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix to create a thick batter.
- Pour into a large muffin tin with 6 holes or a medium sized muffin tin with 12 holes. Fill halfway up the holes.
- In a separate bowl, stir sugar, brown sugar and pecans together. Spread over the top of the batter evenly.
- Pour hot water over the entire thing, without stirring, and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or once the middles are set. Tip: place on a baking sheet incase it bubbles over.
- Cool 5 – 10 minutes before serving.
- Serve hot with freshly whipped cream!
This is how I make my own pumpkin spice in case you run out or you don´t live in a country where you can buy it (Me me!), AND I created this video over a year ago to show how I make my own whipped cream. I hope both of these recipes help you guys!
