Dice potatoes into 2" chunks.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and boil until tender, about 15 minutes.
Drain well and allow to sit in the colander a few minutes to make sure all water evaporates.
With an electric mixer on low, blend potatoes with butter and maple syrup. Add cream or milk a little bit at a time to reach desired consistency.
Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot and top with a dash of cinnamon if desired.
