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!


Ingredients



  • 4 cups sweet potatoes
  • 1 can coconut mIlk
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cups margarine, melted
  • 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup raisins, soaked
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon lime rind, grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons white rum

Cornmeal?
by: Elaine

Much nicer without cornmeal. Cornmeal pudding is cornmeal pudding. Sweet potato pudding is sweet potato pudding. Mixing both! no! no, no!!!!

soft pudding top
by: Anonymous

to get the soft top you have to bake with heat on top. not sure if you will get the same results as doing it on a coal stove that's the way my granny did it delicious.
