I can honestly tell you that I was VERY apprehensive to try these pancakes. I can’t stand sweet potatoes (in any form) and since this recipe packs one-half cup per 10 pancakes, I thought for sure that was all I would taste! I am thrilled to say, I was wrong!! Not only are they delicious, but they may just be the best pancakes I have ever had!!! And I don’t think that I’ll revert back to the ‘old-fashioned’ way! ūüôā Here’s how I make them:

1. Start with 1/2 cup of puréed sweet potatoes blended smooth.

2. Add 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix well until blended.

3. Then add 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt and mix well. It should be smooth and semi-runny like “regular” pancake batter.

4. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto heated pan or griddle. When the pancake starts to bubble, it is ready to flip!

I use a Pampered Chef Double Griddle over medium-high heat (sprinkle water to test — when the water “bounces,” the griddle is hot enough).

5. I add a little butter and powdered sugar when I serve them. This recipe makes 10 pancakes and we devour them all! I think I may have to start making a double batch, they are so good!!!
