Recipe

Caribbean sweet potatoes grow on a trailing vine and have orange skins and flesh that varies in hue from pale white to reddish orange. In the French islands sweet potatoes are called patates douces, and in the Spanish islands patatas dulces.

Yield: Makes about eight 8-inch waffles

Ingredients

Orange butter:

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons curacao liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

Sweet-potato waffles:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1½ cups cooked and puréed sweet potatoes
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest

Garnish:

  • Fresh orange slices

Directions

In a small bowl, whip together the butter, curaçao, and orange zest until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Sift the first four ingredients into a large bowl, and set the bowl aside. In another bowl, combine the egg yolks, sweet potatoes, milk, sugar, and butter. Stir this mixture into the flour mixture. Beat the egg whites until stiff but moist peaks form, and fold the whites into the batter. Spoon the batter into a hot waffle iron, and bake until the waffles are golden brown and no steam appears.
