Sweet Potato Pancakes

(6 servings)

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 and 1/4 cups sweet potatoes - peeled/cooked/mashed
  • 1/4 cup butter- melted
  • 2 large eggs - beaten
  • 1 additional Tablespoon butter for frying
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Makes about 20 pancakes.

Allow potatoes to cool to room temperature before making batter.

In a large miking bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.

In a seperate bowl, combine milk, potatoes, eggs and butter.

Combine the two mixtures until dry ingredients are just moistened.

Allow batter to set, while you heat a griddle or skillet to medium-high heat and lightly grease with butter.

Drop batter by heaping Tablespoons onto griddle or skillet and fry, turning once, until browned on both sides.

Great with maple syrup and butter. Or try it with "sweetened sour cream" - mix 1/2 cup of sour cream with a Tablespoon of brown sugar.
