Farm Fresh Butter Rum Sweet Potato Pancakes

These aren't your usual, out of the box pancakes. These are fresh from scratch... the way that you make them on the farm, with a little buttered rum added in for good measure.

It may take a few extra steps, but these are how fresh pancakes are supposed to taste. Break free of your preprocessed mold, and return to the old fashioned ways.

If you want an even healthier batch, add a tablespoon or two of honey wheat germ and switch out the white flour for ultragrain flour.

Happy breakfasting!
