Molasses Whipped Sweet Potatoes

Molasses Whipped Sweet Potatoes


  • 6 large sweet potatoes (about 6 pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Cooking Directions

    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    • Place potatoes on a baking sheet and transfer to oven. Roast until easily pierced with a fork, about an hour. Let potatoes cool slightly; remove skin and discard.

    • Transfer potatoes to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; beat until smooth. Add butter, salt, orange juice, sugar, molasses, and maple syrup; beat until butter is melted and mixture is well combined. Serve immediately or store, covered and refrigerated, up to 1 day. To reheat, transfer potato mixture to an ovenproof dish, cover, and place in a 350-degree oven until heated through.
