Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sweet Potato Pancakes

1 & 1/2 Cups of AP Flour
3 & 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 TBS Brown Sugar
1 & 1/4 Cups Milk
1 Large Egg
3 TBS Butter, melted
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 pound of grated Sweet Potato (hold this out of the initial mix)

+ In a Large mixing bowl, pour in all of the dry ingredients, and stir well.

+ Put the butter in a microwave safe bowl and nuke for 30 seconds. Beat the egg before adding. Pour in all of the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.

+ Once the batter is well mixed add in the grated Sweet Potato and stir very well until the batter looks consistent.

+ Spray some cooking spray in a frying pan or girdle and put on medium heat. When the pan is nice and hot pour in the batter. I like to make one large pancake at a time. If you prefer silver dollar size then do what you will. Mashed and maneuver the batter a bit so that you don't get a thick pile of potato in the center. You want an even amount across the surface of the pancake.

+ When you see the bubbles that form across the batter being to pop its time to flip. The second side gets harder to judge. Just try to remember about how long the first side took and flip to check about the same time. You can always flip it back over if it needs more time.

+ Repeat the cooking process until all the batter is gone. I like to spread a little margarine on each pancake as soon as it comes off the pan. This way it melts in while its still hot. Add syrup or other toppings if desired.

This recipe makes about 8 large pancakes. Per pancake its about 240 calories which includes pancake syrup.


I hope you enjoyed this recipe. If you cook this I'd love to hear what you thought. Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
