- 2 c. sifted all-purpose flour
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/2 c. melted butter
- 1 c. boiled, peeled, mashed sweet potatoes
- 2/3 c. buttermilk
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Using a medium-size bowl beat melted butter into sweet potatoes. Add dry ingredients, stirring in a little at a time, alternate with buttermilk. Mix just well enough to moisten.
Form into a ball, turn out on a lightly floured board. Lightly pat top side with flour since batter is sticky. Roll out to 1/2 to 3/4-inch thickness with a floured rolling pin. Cut with a floured biscuit cutter. Bake in preheated 450 degrees oven for about 20 to 25 minutes.
