Description

Vegan Jamaican Sweet Potato Pudding is the vegan version of this popular dessert enjoyed in Jamaica and the Caribbean throughout the year! It is  very moist, rich, and indulgent!I enjoyed this dessert while growing up in Jamaica. It is easy to make, using a food processor or a blender. I must say it wasn’t as easy to make when I was growing up, but it was such a delight to eat and an appreciation of my mother’s labor of love that brings back warm memories!My mom would grate the sweet potatoes by hand using a box grater, this was one of my least favorite tasks! She would mix the grated sweet potatoes with coconut milk (freshly grated), flour, spices, and raisins.  The mixture was then baked outdoors, using a traditional coal stove. She would make a fire with charcoal beneath the baking pan, then cover the baking pan and put more heated coals on top of the baking pan.In Jamaica, this style of baking is called, “hell a top, hell a bottom and hallelujah in the middle” The results would be a decadent pudding perfectly baked with a sweet custard top.Nowadays I make my version of Jamaican Sweet Potato pudding vegan and gluten-free. In a jiffy,  I peel and chop the potatoes. Process in a food processor, add canned coconut milk, gluten-free flour, and spices and pop it in an oven. I do a special step to get the custard topping  by adding extra sweetened coconut milk halfway during baking.This recipe is a must try, there isn’t much room to fail if you are trying it for the first time. You will be happy you tried it! Serve it with my Jamaican Stew Peas with Dumplings and my Jamaican Sorrel Drink for a truly authentic taste of the Island.To make Jamaican Sweet Potato pudding, you will need a special variety of sweet potato that has a white flesh with red skin. It is mainly sold in West Indian, Asian and African grocery stores. But fortunately it’s getting more popular here in the USA and it can even be found in Walmart. Sometimes it is also sold as ‘batata’.Here are some of the differences between Jamaican white-flesh sweet potato and American orange-flesh sweet potato:The Jamaican white flesh sweet potato is white flesh with red skin and the American sweet potato is orange flesh with brown skin.The Jamaican sweet potato is sturdier when cooked, the American sweet potato is softer.Jamaican sweet potato is starchier in texture than American sweet potatoAlthough they are both sweet, there is a distinct difference in their sweetness.
