This was a good morning for pancakes……..nuff said! Uh…..seriously a good morning for warmth on a plate with sweet gooey buttery pancakes. No really, these were super. Super easy, super fast and super fantastic! The sweet potato was, well sweet and earthy (love that!). It needed nothing but this plain ol nothing of a basic pancake recipe and some sweet potato. It does help having delicious maple syrup warmed to perfection. Just a side note for you there, but it does put this humble breakfast dish into a new category.
Here’s all you do:
Sweet Potato Pancakes:
Adapted from Pumpkin Pancakes by Heather Christo
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
¾ cup sweet potato
2 Tbs melted butter
Preheat a griddle to 375˚or a pan to medium.
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk, sweet potato, egg and melted butter. Combine well until you have a smooth batter.
Grease the griddle or pan with vegetable oil. Pour the pancakes to whatever size you like. When bubbles start to form on the surface, flip the pancake. Let them cook another minute before removing them from the pan. Place pancakes on a plate in the oven at 220˚ keeping them warm (just a suggestion)! ;-)
While pancakes are cooking you can heat your syrup up. Then when you are done cooking all of your pancakes, this will be delicious for them!
Serve with fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh coffee! Viola!
These are sooooo good! Even if you are not a huge pancake lover (like me!) you will absolutely love these. Hmmmm maybe you should actually be a sweet potato fan too! Helps.
If you have guests visiting and need to fix breakfast or if the kids are having a sleep over this is an excellent choice! Really filling and for summer you are full and energized for the day. Or at the very least it will get those rug rats fed until lunch!!
