Sweet Potato Brownies

My sister is famous in Nymboida for her beetroot chocolate cake, so we thought we would try making another recipe with a root vegetable. This recipe is rich and moist and relatively easy to make. During isolation I have found a lot more time to bake and as we have been having dessert every night we have been experimenting a little.
