Sweet Potato Casserole
Sweet potato casserole is called Suesskartoffelauflauf in German.
- 2.2 kg (4.85 pounds) of sweet potatoes
- 3–4 apples (depending on size)
- 80 g (2.82 ounces) of butter
- 50-100 ml (1.69-3.38 ounces) of maple syrup (depending on apples you use)
For the topping:
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
Quarter the apples, remove the core, and cut them into slices.
Cook the sweet potatoes for about 24 minutes. When fully cooked, peel them and cut them into cubes.
Melt the 80 g (2.82 ounces) of butter and then add the maple syrup. Cook the apples for about 5 minutes in the butter/maple syrup mixture. Add the diced potatoes. Sprinkle some salt over it and mix the apples and sweet potatoes together.
Use a potato masher and mash the mixture—but not too fine. Butter a heat resistant oven dish and add the mashed sweet potatoes and apple in it. Spread dabs of butter on top, followed by an even sprinkling of brown sugar.
Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F) and place the sweet potato casserole on the middle rack. Let it bake for about 20–25 minutes. DONE!
