Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sweet Potato Pancakes

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank KennyRogers for this recipe.

These were fantastic! Well worth the two day effort to make the mashed sweet potatoes. We had them for Swedish Thanskgiving breakfast with turkey bacon, maple syrup and lingonberry jam (like cranberry). Excellent! Will definitely do again.

Best pancakes I've ever made and close to the best ones I've ever eaten! Thanks. The texture was moist. The flavor was great. I added just a little vanilla.

These are absolutely amazing. Instead of butter I used apple sauce to cut calories and they tasted great. Also add some pecans for the crunch and good fats. Yum.

This is a great sweet potato pancake recipe. They cook up light, fluffy, moist, and flavorful.

Not sure about these pancakes. I couldn't get them to cook to anything but a gooey mess. No fluff, just cakey gooeyness. Maybe that is how they are supposed to be, let me know what the consistency is supposed to be for future reference. The flavor was great, just a bad texture.

I made this with leftover candied sweet potatoes. Tasted yummy! I like them with applesauce instead of syrup. Definitely better than plain old dry pancakes.

I pushed my friend until she gave me this recipe. It has been my biggest pregnancy craving. The taste far outweighs the spelling mistakes.

The recipe looks good, but "separate" is spelled wrong. FYI.
