    Chef Kate's Note:

    From pastry chef Kim Boyce formerly of Campanile, by way of the LA Times. Amazingly good! Use the dark-skinned sweet potatoes commonly referred to as yams. The long cooking time includes the roasting of the sweet potatoes.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    muffins

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork and place on a foil-lined cookie sheet.
    3. 3
      Roast for 1 hour or until they are tender when pierced with a fork and are caramelizing.
    4. 4
      Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then peel and lightly mash with a fork. Set aside.
    5. 5
      Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the muffin tin with vegetable oil.
    6. 6
      Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, whole-wheat flour, whole-grain pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk, yogurt, egg and vanilla together.
    8. 8
      Scrape down the sides of the butter bowl and alternately add the dry and wet ingredients; do not overmix. Gently fold in the sweet potatoes, then the dates.
    9. 9
      Using an ice cream scoop (about one-half cup capacity), scoop the batter into each of 10 prepared muffin cups, about 1 scoop per muffin.
    10. 10
      Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. The muffins will be dark golden brown on the bottom.

      The title says it all! I made this as directed but mixed all of the wet ingredients together except the buttermilk and then alternated that with the flour mix. My sweet potatoes may have been a bit too large because I ended up baking them about an hour and they still were a bit too moist in the middle but still very tasty. I did sub Splenda products for the sugars. Mine puffed up really high too! Made for the Please Review tag game.

      Lovely moist muffins with great flavor. I added some cinnamon and sugar to the top and it was just perfect. Thanks for sharing!
