1 1/2 cups leftover sweet potato casserole (lightly mashed, if needed)
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing griddle
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups (about 7 1/2 oz.) all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
3/4 cup toasted pecans


Active: 30 Minutes
Total: 30 Minutes

1. Whisk together sweet potato casserole, milk, butter, and eggs in a large bowl. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into sweet potato casserole mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened.

2. Pour about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium. Cook until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look dry and cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook until puffed and cooked through, about 2 minutes. (Cook times will vary. If starting with a very wet sweet potato casserole, increase cook time by 2 minutes.)

3. Serve pancakes immediately with syrup and toasted pecans, or place in a single layer on a baking sheet, and keep warm in a 200°F oven up to 30 minutes.
