  • 1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground mixed spice or pumpkin pie spice (6 parts cinnamon, 1 part ground nutmeg, 1 part ground ginger, ½ part ground allspice, ½ part ground cloves)
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 lb (900g) sweet potatoes , peeled
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups (225g) raisins
  • 1 can (13.5 oz or 400ml) coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Now you have to grate the potatoes. Do it either manually, using a box grater on the finest setting, or, I assume, you can use a food processor. I did everything manually and I can't guarantee that you will get the same result with a food processor.
  • Put the flour and all the spices into a large mixing bowl and mix. Stir in the grated sweet potatoes. Add the brown sugar, raisins, coconut milk and vanilla extract and mix everything well.
  • Grease a 8-inch (20cm) springform cake pan. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 40-60 minutes until it is firm to the touch. When done, remove from the oven and allow to stand for 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
