These are REALLY good. Everyone, including 6 year old Emma, loved them. The recipe only makes a couple of pancakes, so I double, triple, or quadruple the recipe and put the leftover pancakes in the fridge. Pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds and they taste as fresh as when you made them. Plus they are very healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals.


Sweet Potato Pancakes

1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato
1/3 cup egg beaters or 2 eggs
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp baking soda and baking powder
1 or 2 tsp sugar or sugar substitute of your choice-don’t skip this or they’ll be bitter
dash salt and even bigger dash of cinnamon
if the batter is too thick add some milk

Mix well, make sure all the sweet potato is mashed. The batter is pretty thick so I spread it out when I scoop them on the hot skillet. Cook as you would normal pancakes. They don’t “bubble” like normal pancakes, so watch that they are cook thoroughly, but not burned.

I've never had sweet potatoes, but this sure sounds good and healthy!

I am not a fan of sweet potatoes, but mom had a similar recipe that was always one of her faborite meals she use to make for us. About the only difference is she used regular potatoes and puried them in the blender, eggs, flour, salt and i think some milk, then fry in skillet. Unfortunatly she never measured anything and for the life of me and for as many times i helped her fix these i have never been able to get them to turn out as good as hers. She also has a few other recipies that she, nothing written down, just thrown together, i miss moms cooking. Now i am so hungry for her potato pancakes.

Oh LYNNE! This recipe says you can use regular potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. I would omit the sugar though.

I think i would omit the cinnamon also, that would be ok for the sweet potatos but not regular one.

Oh....... they sound scrummy.

We often have the ones with normal potatoes - we call ours potato cakes, i have also added, caramelised leeks, and some grated cheese too, cook them either, under grill, in fry pan or in oven, add some butter when cooked, it melts all gorgeous an yummy. They are nice for breakfast with bacon and eggs.

Diane, your potato pancakes sound really yummy too! I'm going to make a batch tomorrow to keep in the fridge and I think I'll freeze a couple to see how they do after being in the freezer.
