Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) and grease a pie dish with soft butter.


Sprinkle a little flour on the bottom and around the sides and place the pie crust into the pie dish, crimping the edges with a fork.


Combine the sweet potatoes, unsalted butter, and brown sugar in a bowl using a masher or an electric mixer until creamy.


Next, add eggs, evaporated milk, flour, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger powder, and salt. Mixing until thoroughly incorporated.


Pour the sweet potato filling in the pie shell and bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven.


Insert a knife or tooth into the center of the pie to check if it's perfectly cooked. The toothpick or knife should come out clean. Allow the baked pie to cool completely, then place it in the fridge until firm.


Cut into 8 slices and serve with whipped cream.

Cooking Tips

If you have a muffin tin, you could make smaller pies for kids to make them easier to handle.


During baking, resist the temptation to open the open, as this will let the warm air out of the oven, and it could cause the pie to cook unevenly.
