Sweet Potato Casserole


Before Serving

  • simple syrup


  • Bake the sweet potatoes at 450 for 1 hour.  Allow to cool the peel the skin off. 
  • Place the peeled sweet potatoes in a medium size bowl and mash.  Then, add the semolina and mix well. Add in the ghee butter, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, rosewater, and blossom water.
  • Meanwhile, crush 3 cups of walnuts in a ziplocked bag then place in a small bowl. To the walnuts, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and rosewater, then mix. 
  • In a medium-sized baking dish, 2-3 inches deep spray generously with cooking oil spray. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Place half the sweet potato mixture on the bottom of the baking dish.  Spread the layer carefully until smooth. 
  • Now, top the sweet potato layer with the walnut mixture and spread evenly.
  • Form the top layer in patches and smooth out until it is totally covered.  Dip your hand in water and smooth out the whole surface. 
  • Bake for half an hour then remove.  Using a knife gently cut into the sweet potato casserole to form diamond or square-shaped pieces. The knife doesn’t need to go deep in when cutting, as long as you have a pattern formed.
  • Place back into the oven for another 20 to 25 minutes.  Broil for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Watch it carefully as it broils.
  • Remove and drizzle simple syrup all over.  Allow to cool for 20 minutes before enjoying!
