Goon Goguma (Baked sweet potatoes with dark brown sugar)
By Kim Yong-ja
This dessert is not only very easy to make, but also healthy for you, because of the fiber that the sweet potato contains.
Ingredients (serves 4)
4 medium sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1. Heat the oven to 375 F/190 C. Wash the potatoes, line them up on a sheet pan and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 50 minutes until they are very soft.
2. Tear open the skin on one side of each sweet potato and fluff the interior with a fork.
3. Add a piece of butter on each and sprinkle dark brown sugar on top. Serve hot.
