Vicky Bryant (found on internet)

Serves/Makes:12 small pancakes

  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cooked sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped, or roughly mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) baking powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) milk (or more)
  • sour cream
  • Place sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl.
  • Add egg and mix well.
  • Stir in the flour and add the baking powder.
  • Add up to 1/3 cup (80 ml) of milk, stirring.
  • Stir in 1 tbsp (15 ml) butter.
  • The mixture should have the consistency of thick, lumpy sauce and be able to coat a wooden spoon.
  • Place a non-stick or heavy iron skillet over medium heat on top of the stove and add 1/2 tsp (2 ml) butter.
  • Spoon 3 tbsp (45 ml) 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.
  • 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.
  • Repeat the procedure until all the pancakes are cooked.
  • 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.
