Sweet Potato Cake

Torta con le patate dolci


Area of Ferrara. It is an oven cake, which goes well with a sweet dessert wine. It is a typical autumn cake for the first cold periods of the year. It is not so popular because sweet potatoes can only be found for a limited time.

Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients: 1 kg of sweet potatoes, 3 eggs, 200 g of sugar, 3/4 of anisette liqueur, 150 g of almonds, 50g of powdered sugar, 20 g of butter (to grease the pan), 20/30 g of breadcrumbs. Serves 6.

Preparation: Wash the sweet potatoes well and then boil them; let them cool off a little and then peel and mash them. Add the sugar, the yolks, the anisette liqueur and half of the quantity of the chopped and a little roasted almonds. Mix the compound well and then add the egg whites, beaten to a firm froth. Grease the pan well with butter and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over it. They must stick evenly to the butter, in order to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan. Pour the dough in it, sprinkle the remainder of the chopped almonds and a little refined sugar and then cook it in a pre-heated oven at 180°. After about 30-35 minutes (it should look slightly golden brown), remove from the oven and dust it with icing sugar.

Suggested white wine Albana dolce
