Raise your hand if you love sweet potatoes? If so you are going to fall head over heels for this yummy Sweet Potato Cupcakes Recipe! They will be a perfect addition to your holiday gathering! They might even turn into a must have for your future Thanksgiving! You never know unless you give them a try!
I’m going to be honest, I’m not biting on sweet potatoes, I made these because my daughter wanted me to make them. And to my surprise, I don’t mind sweet potatoes so much when it’s in something sweet like these cupcakes, and I’m sure I’ll love them in cookies too! I’ve always loved sweet potato pie, but never really thought of the fact that it is made using sweet potatoes lol. Crazy right.
I will always remember my mom’s sweet potato pies. Vayda wanted me to try and make sweet potato cupcakes because we both love grandma’s pie so much. Yes, that is when it hit me! OMG, that pie is made out of sweet potatoes, lol. I’ve never had to make it because my mom is the pie maker, nobody can make a pie like my mom! Since Vayda and I both wanted to try and make something a little different, I agreed to give the cupcakes a try. I wanted to try something different for my family gathering. I hope that they enjoy them as much as my children and my husband do.
Vayda loved them so much she took a few with her to school so she could share them with her friends. Yes, Vayda is just like her grandma she loves sweet potato everything.
Vayda came home and said she gave two cupcakes to hear teachers who loved them and a few to her friends and she was a little upset that two of her friends didn’t like them, lol. I think she took it a bit too personal so I talked to her about us all being different and liking different things, and it made her feel better. Tweens can be so sensitive about stuff. She was upset that someone didn’t like the cupcakes lol. Poor girl, I did explain to her that they are not chocolate you can’t expect everyone to love them lol. Hey, it’s true, and it put a smile on her face!
With Thanksgiving sneaking up on us I thought it would be a good time to share this recipe with you! I don’t know if you are looking for a new cupcake recipe to add to your dessert table or if you just want to try something new and little different but either way, I hope you and your family love this recipe more than Vayda’s two friends lol. I’m sure you will but do let me know what you think if you make them!
My husband and kids loved the frosting on the cupcakes. It was a bit sweet for me personally, but then again I always take off half of the icing when I eat a cupcake. I love cupcakes, but the icing is often too much for me. This is also great without any icing! That’s how I liked them, but everyone is different play with this recipe. Have fun, make it their own and let me know how you like it.
After making these I really think I want to try and make a moist sweet potato cake recipe! Doesn’t that sound yummy? Oh, or maybe a sweet potato cake with cream cheese frosting or even better a sweet potato cupcakes with toasted marshmallow frosting. What do you think?
