Cooking Beer Suggestions:
This is such a multifaceted beer style to cook with. It’s full of rich dextrin malt flavors, with an English toffee, dried fruit and molasses notes, it can be used many different ways. There are many versions and amount of alcohol in this style. One beer that I enjoy is North Coast Brewing Co. Old Stock Ale. Check BeerAdvocate for other beers in this style.
To make this recipe a Vegan:
Replace the cream with coconut cream or cashew milk. Follow the same directions, reducing the coconut cream or nut milk instead.
Westmalle Dubbel Marshmallow Topping Option:
If you want to top these yams with marshmallows, then they should by my Westmalle Dubbel Marshmallow recipe. Once the recipe has been made, take finished squares of the marshmallows and evenly distribute them over the top of the mashed yams, transferred to a casserole pan or baking dish. Place into a 400°F/205°C preheated oven and bake (convection roast) until the marshmallows are golden brown, about 20 – 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
