Sweet potatoe cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting!

With no pumpkin in the house, and not wanting to go out into the cold, I made sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving when we living in London.  It has to be the yummiest thing I have ever eaten, until I made these... drum roll.... I give you.... Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Cinnamon cream cheese frosting!! Ta-dah! You must must must try this recipe.

100 grams of butter
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
pinch salt
a smallish sweet potato (cooked, mashed and cooled)
1 1/4 cups of self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder

1. Peel and dice the sweet potato. Cook it until tender enough to be mashed. Mash it and then let it cool. You can't put hot potato in the mixture, it will make the butter melt and the eggs scramble.
2. Cream the butter, sugar and eggs together. A
3. Add the spices, salt, and milk. 
4. Add the cooled potato and mix altogether.
5. Mix in the flour and baking powder.
6. Spoon a tablespoon of mixture into each cupcake case and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins until the centre is cooked. 

Cinnamon cream cheese frosting
Mix together: 80 grams of butter, 200 grams of Philadelphia cream cheese, 500 grams of icing sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp of cinnamon (or two if u love cinnamon). Spread onto cupcakes when they have cooled.
