Baked sweet potato with cinnamon apples

Totally delicious and sweet as candy!


  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 4 red eating apples
  • 25g butter
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 heaped tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbs Greek yogurt
  • handful of pecans


  1. Heat the oven to 200C
  2. Scrub and prick the sweet potatoes, bake in the oven for around 1 hour, you can reduce the cooking time by microwaving them for 5 minutes and then just crisping up the skins in the oven.
  3. Once the potatoes are cooked remove them from the oven, then start the caramelised apples.
  4. Melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan, quarter and core the apples and slice into the sizzling butter. Give them a quick stir and then drizzle over the honey and sprinkle over the cinnamon. Continue to gently stir them until they're just softening and turning sticky.
  5. Split open the sweet potatoes, tip in the cinnamon apples, add a spoonful of Greek yogurt and scatter over the pecans.

Make it your way…

  • Switch the Greek yogurt for a good vanilla ice-cream.
  • Use plums instead of apples, or a mix of both.
  • Try different nuts – hazelnuts or flaked almonds would work well.

    I started a NEARLY meatless routine of eating 4 months ago so this looks fantastic. Sweet potatoes are so richly flavored by themselves and the addition of apples, nuts, yogurt and cinnamon is to die for! My personal additions would be shallots or sweet onion and a few scraping of fresh nutmeg…my goodness, I’m hungry! Thank you!!!

      Ooooh Kim! Now I need baked sweet potato with shallots! They’re one of my favourite quick meals at the minute, they bake so fast especially if you give them a blast in the microwave before popping in the oven.
