How To Make sweet potato pancakes

  • 1
    Place sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl, add egg and mix well.
  • 2
    Stir in the flour and add the baking powder.
  • 3
    Add up to 1/3 cup of milk, stirring; stir in 1 tablespoon butter - The mixture should have the consistency of thick, lumpy sauce and be able to coat a wooden spoon.
  • 4
    Place a non-stick or heavy iron skillet over medium heat on top of the stove and add 1/2 teaspoon butter.
  • 5
    Spoon 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake into the skillet and cook until bubbles rise to the surface of the pancakes and break, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • 6
    Using a spatula, flip the pancakes and cook another 2 minutes; remove pancakes from the skillet and keep warm on a covered plate in the oven.
  • 7
    Repeat the procedure until all the pancakes are cooked.
  • 8
    After the first batch is cooked, add as little butter as possible without allowing the pancakes to stick to the bottom of the pan - Serve with sour cream.
