  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup crushed cornflakes


Leave the sweet potatoes in their jackets, cover with boiling water and keep boiling until tender; about 25 minutes. Rice or mash, then add the next four ingredients and beat with a wire whisk until very light.

Form into balls and dip in a mixture of the egg and water, then roll in crushed cornflakes. Fry in a deep fryer preheated to 380 degrees F until golden brown.
