Sweet Potato Pancakes for Supper?


Follow this recipe for the most delish pancakes you've ever eaten!  [my variations in brackets]

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Recipe courtesy of Joseph's

Total Time:
1 hr 10 min
55 min
15 min
4 to 6 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon [or if you're like me and accidentally triple the amount--don't ask how--it's even better]
  • Pinch nutmeg [oops, my nutmeg was expired, so it had to be omitted]
  • 2 cups milk [plus a little more, plus a little more...until they were thin enough to cook through w/out burning]
  • 4 teaspoons melted butter, plus more for greasing skillet
  • 2 whole eggs
  • sweet potato, cooked until tender, peeled and pureed
  • Pecan butter, recipe follows [this is a MUST; do not skip this part!]
  • Maple syrup, for serving [also a MUST!]


In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix together and whisk until smooth. Cook batches in buttered skillet on medium high [or med lo] temperature until bubbles form on the surface, then turn over and cook until dark golden brown. Serve with pecan butter and maple syrup.  [i had two iron skillets going at once, keeping the cooked ones warm in a 170 degree oven.  oh, who am i kidding?  we were eating them too fast to worry about keeping warm]

Pecan Butter:

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans toasted and cooled
  • 1/2 pound butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon [once again, i tripled the amount.  honest mistake that i'm glad i made]
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Mix all ingredients together (use rubber gloves). Roll in parchment paper and freeze. Cut into slices and top sweet potato pancakes. [skipped the freezer part.  no time for that.  just spooned the soft butter mixture right on top of the pancakes]
Yield: 10 servings

Please use real maple syrup.  I mean, don't even talk to me if you pour the artificial processed corn syrup kind over these home-made babies.

Kidding.  You can talk to me.  But don't tell me.  (smiling)  Admittedly, I have some Mrs. Buttersworth in my cabinet, probably for the last time I bought processed waffles, which has been a while.  Real maple syrup just doesn't go with Eggos.  Kinda' like drinking wine with Ramen noodles, I think.
