This recipe was based on another from Channel 4 which contained turkish delight. As usual we adjusted the recipe according to what we had in our kitchen.
Yesterday I roasted 500g of sweet potatoes for around 1 hour at gas mark 5, until the insides had gone soft and the skins had gone crispy. I scraped the insides out of the skins and put them in a tub in the fridge until we were ready to start the recipe.
The new ingredients were as follows:
500g sweet potato
15 quail eggs (equivalent to 3 medium eggs)
140g light brown sugar
60g dark muscavado sugar
175g dark chocolate
25g ground almonds and 75g ground peanuts
2 tablespoons millet flour
70g fat reduced cocoa powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp vanilla extract
no turkish delight
The method was the same as the channel 4 version but we stirred the mixture instead of folding in the ingredients because the mixture was a bit too dry to start with.
