  • 1 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sweet potato mashed
  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, whole
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C for about 15 minutes. Grease a 9×13 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray or line it with parchment paper/aluminum foil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl stir together the “dry ingredients”.
  3. To this add all the ingredients listed under “wet ingredients” and beat/whisk until smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into a 9×13 baking dish or cast-iron skillet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the center has set. Mine was done around 27 minutes.
  1. The taste and texture were pretty much like the usual cornbread. I didn’t taste the sweet potato.
My Notes:
  1. Pumpkin puree, cooked, and mashed squash is also a good substitute for the mashed sweet potato in this recipe.
