“These are a very welcome change from regular pancakes. Great with maple syrup or cranberry sauce.” - by SWIZZLESTICKS
Original recipe yields 24 pancakes
- Place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan of boiling water, and cook until tender but firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, and immediately immerse in cold water to loosen skins. Drain, remove skins, chop, and mash.
- In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Mix mashed sweet potatoes, eggs, milk and butter in a separate medium bowl. Blend sweet potato mixture into the flour mixture to form a batter.
- Preheat a lightly greased griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter mixture onto the prepared griddle by heaping tablespoonfuls, and cook until golden brown, turning once with a spatula when the surface begins to bubble.

I thought there was too much nut..." See moremeg flavor, so next time I will reduce to 1/4 tsp. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla, and will definitely do that again. Note that 3/4 lb. potatoes is the same as 2 1/2 cups cut up (in case you don't have a scale). I peeled and cut the potato into chunks before boiling, so I omitted the skin removal and mashing steps (they mashed very easily when blending with a mixer with the other ingredients). I mixed all wet ingredients with the potatoes in one bowl, then mixed all the dry ingredients in another bowl, putting them together at the end. I did have to add more milk (almost 1/2 cup) to make them more spreadable. Thanks so much for the recipe!"
"I decided to try altering this recipe and it was great (adults and kids alike!). Instead of the 1-1/2 cups flour - I used 1 cup flour and 1/2 cups rolled oats. (seemed to really hold well and have a..." See more fluffy pancake - tasted great too!) I also added 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp pure vanilla extract. We served it w/cinnamon sugar butter and all loved them!"
"This was awesome! Add chopped pecans to the batter or sprinkle them on top for a real Louisiana flavor. We froze half the batter for later use, and it was even tastier than the first day. I think the ..." See morekey is to let it sit for a while to really bring out the taste of the potatoes."
