Sweet Potato Biscuits

December 4, 2015


Like sweet potatoes – but want to try something other than the same  old

ho-hum casserole?  Or do you have leftover baked sweet potatoes  and aren’t sure what you should do with them?  Look no further.  This recipe is great.  And a tasty way to do both.  I love baking powder biscuits and now I’ve added sweet potatoes to the  mix.  

Can you say – YUM?





2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 potatoes)

1 stick butter, melted

1¼ cups milk

4 cups self-rising flour*

3 TBSP sugar



Mix together the sweet potatoes, butter and milk until well blended.  Stir in the flour, baking soda and sugar.  Shape the dough into a ball and knead about 8 to 10 times on a well-floured board.  Roll the dough out 1 inch thick and cut with a 2 inch biscuit cutter (I just cut mine into 

irregular shapes with a sharp knife).  Baked in a greased baking in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly brown.


Yield: 15-18 biscuits

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes


*In place of 1 cup self rising you may use 1 cup of flour mixed with 1½  

tsp. of baking powder with ½ tsp. of salt
