How to Make Delicious Taro and Purple Sweet Potato Baked Milk Dessert?

Q: Can I use a blender for making the taro mixture?
A: No, it’s not recommended to use a blender as it can cause the mixture to burn. It’s better to mash or grind the ingredients manually for the right consistency.

Q: What should be the consistency of the taro mixture?
A: The taro mixture should not be too thin to avoid bursting during baking. A slightly chunky or well-mashed consistency is ideal.

Q: How full should the baking container be filled?
A: Fill the container no more than 80% to allow room for the milk part to expand during baking. Overfilling may cause spillage.

Q: What is the ideal baking temperature and time for this dessert?
A: Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F) and bake for 20 minutes, then increase to 220°C (428°F) for an additional 5 minutes for browning. However, adjust according to your oven’s characteristics.
