• Seriously Sweet Potato Pancakes

    by healthyrefuge on January 23, 2010

    These Sweet Potato Pancakes are another Freezer Club “home run” recipe thanks to our buddy and former FC member, Devin.  They are fluffy pancake perfection, if you ask me.  This morning, however, I inadvertently made a different Sweet Potato Pancake recipe from Food Network (thinking it was the same one we’ve made for Freezer Club).  It, too, was awesome!  I doubled a batch this morning, fed them to my fam, and then froze another 14 for more quick breakfasts.  Fyi, if you freeze them, just pull them straight from the freezer, stick them in the toaster, and them microwave for 10-20 seconds if still cold in the middle.

    Here is the recipe that I made this a.m.  My changes are in parentheses.

    Seriously Sweet Potato Pancakes

    Makes: 10 pancakes (4-6 servings)

    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    pinch nutmeg
    2 cups milk (used carrageenan-free plain soy milk)
    4 teaspoons melted butter, plus more for greasing skillet
    2 whole eggs
    1 sweet potato, cooked until tender, peeled and pureed (subbed 1/2 mashed sweet potato and 1 Granny Smith apple, grated)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/4 tsp salt

    This was my doubled batch this morning.
    In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. (I mixed the wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately, then combined them.)  Mix together and whisk until smooth. (I let the batter rest for about 5 minutes.)  Cook batches in buttered skillet on medium high temperature until bubbles form on the surface, then turn over and cook until dark golden brown. Serve with pecan butter and maple syrup.
    The little beauties take about 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second, at least on my griddle.
    Nathan wasn’t thrilled with me making him pause his pancake eating so I could snap a shot.
