Jamaican Sweet Potato Pudding

Taken from the Enid Donaldson cookbook. Hell a top, Hell a bottom Hallelujah in the middle! This is a Jamaican riddle and most people know that the answer is a delicious sweet potato pudding, baked in an iron dutch pot or dutch oven with live coals in the bottom of the coal stove and also on the top of the dutch pot. The pudding cooks at the top and at the bottom at the same time. The delicious hallelujah is best liked when the top, called a 'sof pon top', is softer than the rest of the pudding.

    This sounds delicious but I can’t eat coconut, is there anything I can substitute for the coconut milk? Jackie

    Why baking powder? I imagine that would make it more like a cake - which is not what potato pudding is.
