Sweet Potato Fudgy Brownies

These are so fudgy and indulgent you will absolutely adore them! They are based on our super popular tahini fudge brownies in our bakery. One of the hardest parts is to ensure you let these fully cool so they hold their shape.

Takes 45 minutes

Serves 8


  • 200 g sweet potato 50g cooked
  • 65 g vegan butter
  • 100 g chocolate
  • 75 ml water
  • 75 g self raising flour
  • 30 g cornstarch
  • 150 g caster sugar


  • First step, peel and chop the sweet potato into small bite sized pieces. Place the potato in the loaf tin and bake in the Vortex Slim airfyer on the ‘airfryer’ setting for 15 mins at 160 degrees C.
  • Break the chocolate into small pieces like chocolate chips. Melt the butter over a bain-marie. Once almost melted, add in half the chocolate and the water. Once fully melted, take off the heat and add in the cooked sweet potato. Blend in a blender or using a stick blender or even a food processor until super smooth.
  • Mix the flour, sugar, and cornstarch together and make a hole in the centre. Add in the blended chocolatey mixture. Mix together until well combined and fold in the remaining chocolate. 
  • Line a 1 lb loaf tin (approx 450g tin with high side) with baking paper, pour in the brownie batter.
  • Bake in the Vortex Slim airfyer on the ‘bake’ setting at 170C degrees for 25 mins.Take it out and leave it set before you slice it, this will unfortunately take an hour or 2 but it is so worth it!
