Preparation steps

1.
For the Sweet Potatoes:
2.
Preheat oven to 400 F/200 C with the rack in the middle. Pierce sweet potatoes several times with a fork or sharp knife. Bake about 50-60 minutes until potatoes are fork tender. Let cool.
3.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 F/180 C. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skins. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and smash with a masher.
4.
Add the eggs, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, ricotta and maple syrup to the bowl with the potatoes. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
5.
For the Topping:
6.
Bring maple syrup and butter to a boil in a medium fry pan. Reduce heat to low immediately so it does not burn. Gently stir in corn flakes and nuts. Coat well.
7.
To Make the Casserole:
8.
Spray a large, oven safe casserole dish with cooking spray. Fill with sweet potato mixture, spread evenly.
9.
Top with corn flakes mixture and scatter a few cranberries over that. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot.
