Farm Fresh Butter Rum Sweet Potato Pancakes

Tiffany Bannworth


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!

  4. In a separate bowl, sift all dry ingredients and toss with a fork.
  5. Add dry to wet a little at a time. If you need more water to get your preferred consistency, please do.
  6. Then, fold in shredded sweet potatoes, oats, and optionally raisins or dried cranberries.
  7. Place batter, covered, in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour before use.

  9. A tip to keep all your pancakes warm and fresh while you are still cooking- Put your oven on 200F and place a Pyrex casserole dish in there. As you remove your pancakes from the skillet, place them upside down in the Pyrex dish. They will all be fresh and hot when time to serve.
