I'm curious, some of the sweet potato was greenish, what type of potato is this? And why would you leave the skins on? Is there a nutritional value added?

I leave the skins on as I find it’s ok to use and sometimes I don’t. In Bali, we have different types of sweet potatoes some are bright purple and red some are yellow and orange. And the lighter ones oxidize and go a little green as the oxygen seems to make it that way after I peel or don’t peel and chop. And yes there is nutrition in the skin. Tho scrub them well to get all the dirt off. Hope this helps xxx

I really want to make this sweet potato for a dinner party this week but I cannot find sweet potato where I am in Spain. Is there a suitable substitute? I made the root veg cake for another party and everyone loved it.

Hello Eithne. When baking, you can substitute sweet potatoes for squash, yams, and pumpkin depending what's in season. It may alter the taste a little, but the texture should remain the same and will still be absolutely delicious. :) ~ Karelle

Looks amazing and will surely try it.....Great if the measurements were also in grams for European viewers, we have to convert every recipe from cups to grams, tends to put you off making these recipes.

Hello Tonya, I hope you can find time to do this. As for the measurements, this will be passed on. In the meantime, you may use a converter to make this :) ~ . Pauline

Could not agree more. It’s very confusing especially since US cups are different to Australian cups and measuring tablespoons differ also. In Ireland we use the U.K. tablespoon which differs from the US one. Actual weights and volumes would be sooo much easier. Sometime when I try to make recipes using a conversion site cups are converted to volumes (ml or cl) for items we measure in grams. So, like Tonya I sometimes just give up.
