How to Make Sweet Potato Pancakes
- Drain a small can of sweet potatoes. Mash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher, adding back a bit of the syrup if necessary, to get one cup of puree. This could be done in a food processor, but I find it quicker to use a fork or potato masher.
Note: Fresh sweet potatoes can also be used. Microwave a sweet potato in its jacket about 7 minutes, remove pulp from the jacket, and mash with a bit of water or milk to make 1 cup of puree.
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and spice. Beat in the eggs and evaporated milk. Stir in the sweet potatoes until well blended. Finally, add in the melted butter.
Note: You can substitute mixed sweet spices for the pumpkin pie spice, such as 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1/4 tsp nutmeg + 1/4 tsp cloves or ginger.
