  • 3 medium sized yams
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 stick butter

  • 1/2 cup whiskey or rum

Preparation

Step 1

  • 1. Put milk into 2-quart casserole.

Step 2

  • 2. Grate yams, adding to milk as you grate to prevent potatoes from turning dark.

Step 3

  • 3. Beat eggs well and add sugar gradually. Add cinnamon and almonds and mix well with potatoes.

Step 4

  • 4. Dot generously with butter and bake in a 300-degree oven for two hours. Just before serving, pour the whisky or rum over the pudding.
