Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and cover an 8-in (20-cm) or 9-in (23-cm) square cake pan with parchment paper.

Put the diced sweet potato in a saucepan and cover with cold water.

Bring to a boil and cook about 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are very tender. Drain and set aside.

Put the dates in a small saucepan with the orange juice, vanilla and cinnamon.

Cook over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes, or until the dates have absorbed all the juice. Set aside.

Using a double boiler (bain-marie), slowly melt the 100-g chocolate bar. Set aside.

Put the sweet potatoes, orange-flavoured dates and melted chocolate in the bowl of a food processor.

Purée until smooth.

Add the rolled oats, baking powder and salt.

Purée again until the texture is almost smooth (the oats will make the texture a bit fibrous).

Transfer the mix into the cake pan and bake in the oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Wait 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

Using the same double boiler, melt 3 to 4 pieces of dark chocolate and pour it over the brownie.

Garnish with the orange zest.
