  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 egg...

This is a terrific recipe for Hanukkah. My whole family loves it and it is now a tradition for me to make this every year. The recipe is no more difficult to make than regular potato latkes.

Pretty good! I didn't have any cloves so I left them out, but they tasted good anyway. Very sweet and desert-like. Make sure you cook them until they're really brown and look burnt around the...

Consider using 1/2 tsp clove. I wish the amount of sweet potato was specified by cup, since they vary so widely in size. Try substituting a little white potato for sweet potato, for variety in...

Very good, we used a 50/50 sweet potato/yukon gold mix as others suggested and it was a great change from regular latkes!

I'm giving this a 4 instead of 3 because it's a nice idea. However, more sugar is needed and it's missing something else I can't put my finger on...it might be nice to mix sweet and regular pot...

I omitted the cloves and used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable~ very interesting texture and flavor!
