Servings :

Total Time:

4 people

25 minutes


4 sweet potatoes 3 tbsp unsalted butter , more to serve 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Pinch freshly grated nutmeg 1 tbsp maple syrup , or to taste ¼ cup (60ml) cream, or more as needed chives or parsley to garnish

Step 1

Peel and cube the sweet potatoes and place in a saucepan of boiling water with a teaspoon of salt. Cook until the potatoes are tender then drain the water.

Step 2

Dry the saucepan and melt the butter over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring, for about five minutes. The butter will foam and start sizzling around the edges. Take off the heat once you see tiny brown flecks form at the bottom of the pan and detect the wonderfully nutty aroma of browned butter.

Step 3

Add the sweet potatoes, maple syrup, spices and seasoning. Use an electric hand mixer at low speed. Add the cream and continue mixing until the mash is smooth and creamy.

Step 4

Have a taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with chives or parsley and a little extra butter. Serve immediately!
