I carried 4 boxes full of pumpkins, cornucopias, wreaths, and Fall baskets up from the basement yesterday and I officially unleashed Fall inside the Davis house. Our livingroom is a mecca of brilliant orange pumpkin candles, golden yellow mums and vibrant red berry garlands.
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
1/2 cup whole milk
8 Tablespoons butter + 1 Tablespoon
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
Heat oven to 425. Prick potatoes with a fork. Microwave on a plate 10-15 minutes.
Slice potatoes in half to release steam.
Combine cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Scoop potato flesh into dry ingredients and mash.
Whisk together 8 T. melted butter, milk and eggs.
Stir into dry ingredients.
