sweet potato pudding recipe

Baked vegan sweet potato pudding


This baked sweet potato pudding is perfectly spiced while being rich and creamy. It’s a perfect holiday dessert! 


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked sweet potato flesh (from about 1 pound, or 2 medium, sweet potatoes)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 eggs

Optional: Whipped Cream for topping


  1. If your sweet potatoes are not cooked, do that first. When they are cooked, slice them open and scoop out the flesh.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Combine the sweet potato, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves in a food processor and process until completely smooth.
  4. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a medium sauce pan and heat over medium high heat.  When it starts to bubble a bit, give it a good stir.  Allow it to cook for another 2-4 minutes, stirring frequently.  Reduce the heat just a little and slowly whisk in the milk.  Remove from heat and whisk in the flaxseed meal (which should be gelled by now) and whisk until it is well-combined.
  5. Divide the mixture between 4 large (about 1 cup per ramekin) or 8 small ramekins (about 1/2 cup per ramekin) that are placed on a baking sheet.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool at room temperature for 1-2 hours, and then chill until ready to serve.  Or, eat them warm.  They’re really good that way, too.  Top with whipped cream if you prefer. Enjoy!
