Sweet Potato Custard (No Sugar)

This is my alteration of Recipe #117205. The main difference is no sugar. I also was not concerned with it being low-fat, so I used whole eggs and milk. It's a lovely custard to bake on it's own or in a pie shell. Preparation time includes baking the sweet potatoes and simmering the dates.

directions

  • Place dates and water in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until dates have softened and the water is mostly absorbed. Press the date and water mixture through a sieve and discard the dry, fibrous bits that are left.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and then add the molasses.
  • Add the sieved dates, mashed sweet potato and banana and combine well.
  • Stir in milk and spices.
  • Pour into a baking dish or pie shell and bake in a preheated oven for 40-45 minutes at 325°F/170°C A knife inserted near the center will come out clean when the custard is set.
