Sweet Potato Brownies

Welcome back! Hope you’ve had a great week.

Today I’m gonna share my experience with Deliciously Ella’s sweet potato brownies. Since the time I made them, she has upated the recipe, but I haven’t tried that one.

If I may go on a tangent, Ella’s recipes are so amazing and her life is so inspiring. If you ever need something to push you to go forward, check her out.

The brownies were really good, overall. I do need to tweak some things. My oven was not cooperating that day, so, they turned out a little overcooked (maybe it was already considered a little burned) and dry. Also, I need to use a smaller pan, to make them a little thicker, that would help with the dryness too.

I topped with a little powdered sugar. Served them with some fresh berries and a little dollop of homemade toffee sauce, that I keep in my fridge.

I hope you make them and that they turn out better than mine! If you actually do, please share with me by tagging @msizebite on Instagram.

  • Cook for about 45 mins or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely before removing from the dish.
