Jamaican Sweet Potato Pudding Recipe
On Saturday, 7/13/13 I posted a picture on our Facebook page with this question, "When last have you had a slice of this? Delectable Jamaican Potato Pudding?"
In a short while it received over 100 likes, 19 shares plus a whole bunch of comments.
These included, "Can I have that?", "Would do with a piece right now?", "Love it..but can't find no good bakers..its either too dry, no have no flavor or something..always a let down..need to go home for the real thing".
But the most popular comments though were those from people asking where can they find the recipe.
Well here it is!
This is the one- with cornmeal, but I actually extracted it from Grace Kitchens so this one should be really good.
Here you go! Enjoy!

- 1 can coconut mIlk
