Pain Patate Recipe (Haitian Sweet Potato Pie)

This dessert will keep you coming back for more after each bite! ⠀

  • 1 Pie Crust⠀
  • 3 Large Medium size white sweet potatoes⠀
  • 2 tsp. Fresh Ginger grated is optional⠀
  • 1 Ripe banana⠀
  • 4 tbsp. Butter unsalted⠀
  • 1/2 cup Carnation Milk or evaporated milk⠀
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk⠀
  • 1 1/2 cup Brown sugar⠀
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla Extract⠀
  • 2 tsp. Nutmeg⠀
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon⠀
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt Kosher⠀
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.⠀
  2. Make pie dough. I highly suggest preparing your pie crust ahead of time. You can find the exact pie crust recipe I used here. After you make the dough, put it back in the refrigerator so it can remain cool until you are ready to use it.⠀
  3. Blending the potatoes and ginger: Peel the potatoes and cut into quarters or wedges so that it fits perfectly through the feeding tube. Cut the ginger into small chunks, but no need to peel the skin off. In the food processor, process both the potatoes and ginger together until they appear to be finely chopped.⠀
  4. Add the remaining ingredients: Add the banana and butter until it starts to mash. Then add the carnation milk and coconut milk, sugar, and spices. Blend until smooth for about 2-3 minutes. It may appear lumpy – that’s okay.⠀
  5. Roll out pie dough. Roll out the pie dough then place the dough on top of the pie dish. Carefully insert dough into your pie dish, trim the excess dough, then design the edges as desired. Brush the edges of the crust with egg wash.⠀
  6. Pour the filling. Pour the mixture to the dough and bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center on 375%.⠀
  7. Let it cool and serve. Let the pie cool for at least one hour before serving. Top with ice cream or homemade whipped cream.
