How to Make Sweet Potato Pancakes


  1. Mash the sweet potatoes. Add the other ingredients, stirring to blend. If batter is a little thick, add another splash of milk.
  2. Preheat griddle over medium heat. Oil griddle if needed. When the griddle is hot, ladle batter on to the griddle. Turn the pancakes when the edges are cooked and the top is covered with bubbles.
  3. Notes:
    I have substituted cream cheese for the sour cream in this recipe without any problem.
    Nutmeg will also work with the sweet potatoes.
    Be sure to mash the sweet potatoes well.
