Preparation Time

Serves16 muffins

3/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup milk
2/3 cup dark brown sugar packed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
pinch salt
2 eggs lightly beaten
6 tablespoons Butter room temperature
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 sweet potato

1. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil, add the sweet potato, and simmer until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain the potato and allow it to cool slightly; then peel it and cut into several pieces. Puree the potato in a food processor or blender until smooth (should be about 1/2 cup)

2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, and cloves.

3. Cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add in the eggs one at a time beating well in between. Gently stir in the milk, maple syrup, and the potato mixture.

4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour the potato mixture into it. Stir just until the ingredients are incorporated- do not over-mix.

5. Fill the cups about two thirds full with batter and bake at 350 F until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack and allow them to cool.

I want to make these, but I think you are missing a step...what happens with the liquid ingredients and potatoes?
