Ingredients

4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered

2 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/4 cups milk

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

3 eggs

Salt

3 tablespoons butter

One 16-ounce bag miniature marshmallows

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot of water, cover the pot and bring to a boil. Remove the lid, lower the heat to medium and cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain the potatoes and place them in a large bowl. Using a hand-held electric mixer, break up the potatoes. At low speed add the sugar, milk, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, eggs, salt to taste, and combine.
  3. Butter a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish and pour in the mixture. Smooth the top and bake until the pudding is set, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Cover the top of the pudding with marshmallows, change the oven temperature to the broil setting and cook until the marshmallows are brown and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes.
