I’m pretty sure this is my new favorite recipe.
I was going through my bookshelves to see if I had any cookbooks I could live without (spoiler alert: I didn’t), and came across this one: Jack Daniel’s Spirit of Tennessee Cookbook.
This had belonged to my great aunt, and was signed to her from one of the authors, Lynne Tolley. It’s a treasure trove! I went looking for something involving sweet potatoes and found these, what they call sweet potato muffin delights.
They are SO GOOD, y’all. There isn’t a lot of flour, so the eggs and sweet potato make these so light and airy, and the flavors are great! Just a little hint of Jack, but not so much that you can’t respectably eat these for breakfast.
JACKed sweet potato muffins
- 1 3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup milk (I used whole)
- 1/4 cup Jack Daniel’s Whiskey
- 1 1/4 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (microwave is fine here)
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- Cinnamon sugar for topping
- Preheat oven to 425F and grease or line 12 muffin cups
- Combine eggs, milk, Jack, sweet potatoes, and butter and mix well
- Put a wire strainer or sifter over the top of the bowl and add flour, salt, baking powder, and brown sugar; shake or press through until all the mixture is sifted into the bowl
- Mix until JUST combined, then spoon into prepared muffin cups
- Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar, then bake until a toothpick in the center comes out clean; the cookbook says 35-40 minutes but mine were done after 20, so don’t go far
