I used a very large sweet potatoe (about 700grams) which was plenty for 3 of us and I did use sugar free maple syrup for diabetic reasons but otherwise followed through but I personally found it too sweet but then I don't particularly like sweet but the DS and DM really loved it. Mine were cooked in 40 minutes but maybe they were a little smaller than intended. Thank you Queen of Cuisine, made for Diabetic forum December 2010.
