Sweet Potato Pancakes
I made the kids sweet potato pancakes for this Pancake Wednesday as a special treat. My wife had baked about a dozen sweet potatoes that came from her grandparents’ farm, so the fridge was well stocked. I used this recipe from Allrecipes.com, with a few slight modifications.
I cheated and used Bisquick. I placed two cups of Bisquick, along with a 1/4 cup of brown sugar, the nutmeg, and the cinnamon in a mixing bowl. In another bowl I mashed three sweet potatoes with butter, then added the milk, eggs, and a 1/4 cup of apple sauce for some added flavor. After combining the two mixtures the batter yielded 17 pancakes. I’d suggest starting them out on medium heat to avoid setting off the smoke alarm (something of a specialty of mine) and burning the cakes (which never goes over well with the kiddos). We topped them off with some honey and the kids quickly cleaned their plates. If the dads out there, or moms, are looking for a new way to get kids to eat some veggies, while also getting a little adventurous in the kitchen, these sweet potato pancakes were easy to make and delicious to eat.Pin It Tweet
