I'm just wondering because when I bake sweet potatoes just plain they taste like a dessert but I notice the skin is the mainly sweet part where the sugar simplified and leaked out. I want to make sweet potato brownies but the recipes calls for 1/3 of sugar. I know not adding the sugar could mess up the texture,...
The expectation of eating a brownie is something very sweet. Without sugar the natural sweetness from sweet potatoes would not be sufficient for most people.
Sweet Potato is a misnomer. While it is a potato (practically), it is not a Sweet Russet Potato. So some sugar will have to go into the recipe.
Sweet potato and peanut butter brownies? Just throw up in a pan and bake it why don't you?
You could get away with if it they are very sweet. However if they're not that sweet you'll need sugar or maple syrup or honey.
I made the mistake of not adding any sweetener when I made them last week actually and they came out blah because of no extra sweetener. I guess the sweet potatoes weren't as sweet as I thought they'd be.
Definitely try the potatoes in advance and then adjust sweetening as needed or don't if not needed.
Just skipping 1/3 cup of sugar won't make a big difference in texture at least i don't think so.
1/3 cup? that isn't much sugar and won''t mess up the texture of your brownies if you omit it.
All I know is that I accidentally made cookies without sugar and it tasted like I was licking an exhaust pipe.
If the chocolate is cocoa or unsweetened baking chocolate - I don't think you'll like the results. If the chocolate is sweetened, you may be able to get away with it, but it's still going to be more like chocolate-sweet potato bread than cake. I'd throw in a couple tablespoons of sugar and taste the batter to see.
