Pancakes are my most favorite breakfast food. I try to make some every Sunday and switch up the flavor so I don’t get bored with them. A few weeks ago, I decided to make some sweet potato pancakes.
They touched my soul and gave me instant itis…
This is a perfect Sunday morning treat and I would say healthy because sweet potatoes are healthy, right?
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 tsp of ginger
1 tbsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of orange extract (optional)
1 sweet potato, cooked ( I used a microwaved sweet potato) peeled and mashed.
Heat griddle to 400.
1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix the melted butter, egg, buttermilk, and extracts together. Make a well in the dry ingredients, pour the wet ingredients in and whisk together. Then add the mashed sweet potato. It will be clumpy.
2)Melt butter on the griddle and Use a ladle or a 1/2 cup measuring spoon to pour batter on the griddle. When you see the batter bubbling, flip over and cook until done.
