Sweet Potato Cakes (Biscuits)

This is an easy to work with dough and it makes tasty biscuits!

2 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes (canned is fine)
1/2 cup vegetable (canola) oil
1/2 cup milk

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Take out a baking sheet and set aside.

Meanwhile, sift all the dry ingredients together, set aside. With a fork, mix the sweet potatoes, oil and milk together, then mix into the dry ingredients with the fork only until the mixture holds together.  Turn the dough out onto a light floured surface and with lightly floured hands, knead the dough just about 10 times – just until it is smooth. Roll or pat to 1/4″ thick and cut out biscuit rounds, or whatever shape you wish. Place on the baking sheet and bake for about 20-22 minutes.
