This Sweet Potato Pudding is actually more like a creme brulee. The mere mention of this intensely rich vanilla cream, tightly packed into its typical ceramic vessel, sends a shiver down my spine- in a good way of course. Combine it then with the humble yet tasty sweet potato, and that ever-so-slight shiver will become an electrifying wave of excitement, transmitted as impulses through your entire body!
Albeit, this version is a tad more dense than its usual custard contender, but that delicate crunch from the burnt sugar topping is mirrored perfectly in the sweet potato brulee.
