Yesterday was my husband's birthday and I asked him what he wanted for dinner. Here I am thinking he will say something like a fish dish. Nope, he asked for sweet potato pancakes! So funny. So I am sharing the recipe with you because even if you only like sweet potatoes just a little, you will enjoy these pancakes!
You will need to puree' sweet potatoes for this recipe. You can bake some sweet potatoes and puree, buy canned sweet potatoes and puree', use baby food (use a little less water if you do this), or buy canned mashed sweet potatoes. Sometimes, I just don't have the time to do fresh which is ideal.
Pancakes from "Deceptively Delicious"
1 cup water
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
1/4 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (optional, but good)
1 cup pancake mix
nonstick cooking spray
1tbsp canola or veg oil
Pure maple syrup
1. In a large bowl, mix the water, sweet potato puree, and cinnamon or pie spice, if using. Add the pancake mix and stir just to combine--the batter should be lumpy.
2. Coat a griddle or nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over med-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil and spoon the batter onto the pan using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
3. Cook until bubbles form on the top of the pancakes and the batter is set, 2-3 minutes. Then use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook them until golden brown on the other side, 2-3 minutes.
Serve just as you would any pancake!
This could become a family favorite and a dinner request! Enjoy!
