A Colorful Twist on a Classic Dessert

Let’s start by gathering our ingredients. You’ll need 1 purple sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks, along with some water for steaming. Cover and steam the sweet potato for about 20 minutes until it’s fork-tender. While the sweet potato cools down, let’s prepare the other components of our cupcakes.

In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup of warm water (between 90-110oF; 32-43oC) with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast. Give it a good stir and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, allowing the yeast to activate and create a fluffy texture for our cupcakes.

Once the sweet potato has cooled, puree it until velvety smooth. Add the sweet potato puree to the yeast mixture, along with 1/4 cup of superfine sugar and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Blend everything until you have a silky batter.

Now, it’s time to incorporate the dry ingredients. Add 1 cup of all-purpose flour and a pinch of salt to the batter. Mix until the dry flour is no longer visible, making sure not to overmix the batter. We want our cupcakes to be light and fluffy!

The Joy of Steaming

To give our cupcakes their unique shape, we’ll need a silicone mold with standard-size paper liners. Take a wet spoon and smooth the surface of the batter in each cupcake liner. This will ensure a beautifully even texture once they’re steamed.

Allow the dough to rise in a warm place until it doubles in size, which usually takes about 30 minutes. While you wait, bring some water to a boil in your steamer.

Once the dough has risen, it’s time to steam our cupcakes to perfection. Place the silicone mold in the steamer, cover it, and steam the cupcakes on high heat for approximately 13-15 minutes. Remember, resist the temptation to open the steamer during this process. Patience is key!
