Poke some holes all over it using a fork and drizzle some olive oil to cover the sweet potato. Bake it in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the other ingredients. In a large bowl, add 2 boxes of Jiffy mix along with 1/4 tsp baking powder, 2 large eggs, 3 tbsp melted butter, 2/3 cups of milk, and the softened sweet potato. Mix to combine using an electric mixer until smooth.
