Cherry Sweet Potato Pudding

Sounds odd, right? Totally different from the sticky gooey delicious pudding we're used to. Worth the adventure, trying this. The texture's different too, as you grate instead of mash the potatoes. I've had the recipe a while and don't recall where in the world I found it.

Preheat oven to 325F.
Grate 2 lbs sweet potatoes. Put into a bowl.
Add 1 tsp baking powder, 1 c flour, 1/2 c raisins, 1/4 c cherries. Mix together.
Mix in 1/2 can of evaporated milk and 3 to 3 1/2 c coconut milk.
Add 2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 c brown sugar (packed), 1 oz butter, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp salt.
Blend well.
Pour into greased baking dish. Let rest 20 minutes.
Bake at 325F for 1 1/2 hours until center is set. You might want a pan under to catch any drippings.
Let cool a little before serving.

Seriously good stuff.
