Sweet Potato Waffle Fingers (serves 30 - 35)
(adapted from http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/alton-brown/sweet-potato-waffles.html)
1 1/2 c cubed sweet potato (approx 275g)
295mls warm milk
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 butter, melted
1 t vanilla essence
2 c sifted all purpose flour
1 T sifted baking powder
1/2 t salt
6 egg whites, at room temperature
1. Steam sweet potato for 20 minutes
2. Mash sweet potato with a fork (or in my lazy ass case an electronic hand mixer)
3. Add milk, sugar, butter and vanilla essence and mix evenly
4. Add dry ingredients into a clean bowl and mix evenly
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix evenly (electric mixer baby!)
5. Whisk egg whites till peaks form, but be careful not to dry it out
6. Fold 1/3 eggs whites into mixture at a time (Warning this is killer on the arms, but stick in there)
7. Spoon a tablespoon of batter into each finger in the waffle maker
8. Waffles done in approximately 5 minutes or until a skewer come out clean
Give 'em the finger, the tasty waffle finger
