Sweet Potato Souffle

Here is one of my new favorite recipes! It's great for the holidays, so I thought I would post it here to share (and so that I don't lose it!!)

Sweet Potato Souffle (from and edited by me :)

3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon white sugar (I use maple syrup instead)
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup white sugar (I use maple syrup instead)
1 cup heavy cream
5 eggs
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt

Bake sweet potatoes in the oven at 375 for a few hours, until soft.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2 quart souffle dish. Sprinkle dish with 1 tablespoon maple syrup, shaking dish to evenly coat bottom and sides.
Place the sweet potatoes into the bowl of a kitchenaid mixer. Add the butter, 3/4 cup maple syrup, heavy cream, eggs, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Process until mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared souffle dish.
Bake the sweet potato mixture in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake the sweet potato mixture until edges are slightly browned, about 40 minutes more. Serve warm or at room temperature.
