We are Sweet Potato Pie makers first and bakers second.

That's why I have created a customizable multi-use sweet potato pie filling that tastes fantastic as is but because it is not done until you bake it you can add whatever you like to the batter, then pour it and bake it.

Biscuit Recipe

2 Cups flour

2-1/2tsp. Baking powder

1-1/2 Cups pie batter

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a metal sheet pan or iron skillet with butter or olive oil combine ingredients.

Dough will be sticky. Generously flour your surface and coat the dough in it until you can pat it down to about an inch. knead it gently and then flatten it back out to about a 1-2 inch thickness.

Cut biscuits with a round cutter dipped in flour. A small glass works well too! Brush tops with melted butter or honey

and bake for 12 minutes. Enjoy hot

Recipes

Pancake Recipe

1 cup Mamie and Makhi's

   Sweet Potato Pie Batter

1 cup flour

1 cup milk (your favorite kind)

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

Pinch salt

Mix everything into a smooth batter with no lumps. Cook on a hot oiled griddle. Flip when bubbles start to show on the uncooked side. Butter and serve with your favorite syrup.  Makes 2.5 cups batter.

Cake Recipe

2 cups cake flour

¼ cup sugar

½ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch sea salt

2-1/2 cups Mamie & Makhi’s

Sweet Potato Pie Batter

1 egg

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 to 1/2 cup evaporated milk

(only as needed)

Mix all ingredients together, batter will be moist.  I find it bakes better in two 8 or 9 inch cake rounds or a Bundt style cake pan.  Grease and flour pan prior to adding cake mixture.

Pre-heat oven to 375.  Bake cake for 35-40 min.  Inserted toothpick should come out clean.  Do not overcook.

Frosting Recipe

2 cups powdered sugar

Soften butter and cream cheese then add sugar and blend until smooth.

4 oz unsalted butter

4 oz cream cheese

To make cup cakes just use cup liners and reduce the cooking time to 25 minutes.

You can also get creative and make cookies from this recipe! Enjoy and thanks for your patience.

My story:

My Grandmother Mamie Preston Porter migrated from Hattiesburg, Mississippi to Berkeley, California in 1947 and decided to stay.

She brought with her my father Murphy Preston and my aunt Edna Jean and all of her famous Mississippi recipes.

One that stood out was her famous Sweet Potato Pie.

Folks back home would ask her for it time and time again.

We have been enjoying this pie for four generations now and while we can’t share the recipe, we would love to share the pie! Enjoy.
