Sweet potato waffle

Updated: May 20, 2020

Japanese inspired waffle theme part 2.

As a cake craving adult, I have decided to try and create the closest thing to cake, that's not cake. Next up: Sweet potato.

When you stroll around the streets of Tokyo after a couple of hours of arcade gaming, your blood sugar needs stabilizing and luckily you stumble upon the smell of baked sweet potatoes, ready to eat, baked and served in the skin.

I made this for breakfast, however it's greeeeeeat as an afternoon sweet thing.
