Ingredients

  • 4 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

Preparation

Bring the potatoes and enough cold water to cover to a boil in a large saucepan.

 

Reduce the heat and simmer until fork-tender, about 20 minutes.

 

Drain and cool. Mash the potatoes in a large bowl until smooth.

 

Preheat the oven to 375°. Spray a 2 1/2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.

 

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, syrup, egg and vanilla in a small bowl.

 

Add the milk mixture to the potatoes, stirring to combine well. Stir in the raisins, coconut and 3/4 teaspoon salt until blended.

 

Spoon the mixture into the pan.

 

To make the topping, combine the brown sugar, flour, pecans, butter and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the topping over the potatoes and bake, uncovered, until the center is hot and the topping is browned, 25 - 30 minutes.
