Sweet Potato Cobbler

My mom shared this recipe with me recently and I love the crispy crust and the thicker chunks of sweet potato. The sweet potatoes are still fairly whole and not "mushy" in this cobbler and that's what I like best about it. Plus, I like any sweet potato recipe where I don't have to cook them first!

Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 50 Minutes


  • Filling

  • 4 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  • Crust

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour

    • 1 tbsp baking powder

    • 1/2 tsp salt

    • 1 1/2 cups milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375

  2. In a large bowl combine your sweet potatoes, sugar, butter, vanilla and nutmeg

  3. Transfer mixture to a baking dish (9x13 works well)

  4. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.

  5. Add your milk and stir until just combined (when working with flour and crusts, wooden spoons are best)

  6. Spoon your dough over sweet potato filling

  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling
