How Sweet It Is

Delicious served warm, cold or room temperature.
Course: Dessert
Author: Julie Latz / Nutmeg Notebook


  • Cooked Japanese Sweet Potatoes JSP
  • Ripe yet firm bananas
  • Apples – cored and diced
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground cardamon
  • freshly grated nutmeg – or use pre-ground


  • Julie cooks her Japanese Sweet Potatoes in the pressure cooker – cut into 2 inch rounds for 6 minutes.
  • I bake my JSP whole in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour or until cooked through. I think it makes them sweeter when baked.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • There are no quantities – just use as many sweet potatoes as it takes to cover the bottom of your casserole dish. Make as much or as little as you like.
  • For the second layer cut bananas into 1/2 inch slices and cover the JSP layer.
  • The third layer is the diced apples.
  • Sprinkle with spices to taste.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until apples are tender.
  • Serve warm or cold. It’s insanely delicious!
