Sweet potatoes make delicious fried treats for Hannukah! I like to add a little variety to the traditional latke spread.

Directions

  1. Place sweet potatoes in a colander. Place a cheesecloth over the potatoes, and squeeze the potatoes to release as much liquid as possible. Let the potatoes sit to release more liquid, then squeeze again.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, eggs, brown sugar, flour, cloves and cinnamon; mix well.
  3. Heat oil in large heavy skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Form mixture into pancake size cakes, and fry in hot oil. Flip cakes after 2 to 3 minutes (when bottom is browned) and brown other side. Drain on paper towels, and serve piping hot!

This is a pretty good Sweet Potato recipie, however, unless you really LOVE cloves, use a bit less. I tried a 1/2 tea. and they were very nice. Very flavorful and different, my kids loved them!

Very tasty. I prefer nutmeg in sweet potatoes rather than cloves so I substituted and used a 1/2 tsp. This is a keeper.

These were tasty, easy, and cheap, which are my three requirements these days (I live in nowheresville Peru on a peace corps volunteer salary). I love that it snuck some protein in with the eggs, and I actually got a meal of GOOD carbs, instead of white bread, white rice, or pasta. I didn´t have cloves, so I left that out, and I made Pineapple sauce to serve with it. An excellent recipe that I will use a lot!
