I made these Golden Yam Brownies this afternoon and they were heavenly! Unfortunately, I did not have fresh yams, so I used two cups of mashed candied yams, and, along with the addition of some pumpkin pie spice, this was the only alteration I made to the recipe.
I found it to be a bit overwhelmingly sweet, but my mom, who admits that she is quite the sugar-addict, thought it was just perfect.
I also didn't think that the texture was very much like that of a brownie (maybe more like a baked custard/pudding???) as it was a bit too moist for a brownie, and, although set, was quite wet. I'm guessing this happened because I used canned yams?
I still enjoyed this recipe quite a bit, and will definitely be trying it again! I would like to attempt it with fresh yams, but, I have to admit, am a huge fan of the custard-like consistency yielded by the canned yams!
After baking this, my whole kitchen smells just like the holidays! This is a wonderful dish for fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just a very decadent dessert for those with a sweet tooth! Highly recommended!
