    This recipe is fantastic! My husband requests it on a weekly basis. The only changes I made were using whole wheat instead of white flour, walnuts instead of pecans, 1/8 cup of light brown sugar instead of 1/4 dark, and I steamed and mashed a sweet potato. I made it for my mom this weekend and used canned pumpkin (because that's what she wanted) and although iy was good, I didn't think it tasted as good as using the freshly steamed sweet potato.

    I like that it's healthy, but it was mushy. I used pumpkin and reduce the amount of sugar. It took more that 5 mins. for the first side to bubble and be ready to flip. Will look for another recipe.

    Had these for breakfast today and they were fantastic. I used a sweet potato that I had previously roasted in the oven. They were very light and the flavor was wonderful. The toasted pecans added another dimension to what was an already good pancae. I ate many more than I intended. Will make again definitely and will try with whole wheat flour.

    Excellent recipe. I can definitely see myself using this as a base recipe for other kinds of pancakes. I could sub some applesauce for the sweet potatoes and add a little oatmeal for thickness... These were quick and easy. The texture is wonderful--a little dense (which I like) and very filling. 2 pancakes don't seem like much, but I was very satisfied. I made the syrup, too--kind of--just added some vanilla to regular maple syrup. I'm sure it's better w/ vanilla bean.

    I absolutely love this recipe. I like to use white whole wheat flour instead of regular flour. White whole wheat flour has a lighter flavor than regular whole wheat, but more fiber than plain flour. I also use canned pumpkin for this recipe and it turns out well. I usually double the recipe and use a whole can of the pumpkin. I then freeze the leftovers and have easy, quick, and delicious breakfasts afterwards.

    Simply the most delicious pancakes ever!! They were super moist, puffed up nicely, had a great texture and wonderful flavor. I omitted the pecans from the batter and served them on the side so people could add them if they so desired. Instead of using canned sweet potatoes, I chopped and boiled a fresh one, then pureed it in the food processor. This was so good, next time I will double the recipe!

    One of the best pancake recipes I've tried! I subbed pumpkin purée this time and would love to try sweet potato next. Highly recommend!

    A new family favorite! I did substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato, but followed the rest of the recipe to a "T". Next time, I might just put all the toasted pecans in the pancake batter, rather than using some for a topping. Makes a nice presentation if you have company, I guess, but I'd rather not lose them on the floor during family breakfast. They kept falling off the forks.

    These were terrific! My husband was a little skeptical at first but then loved how fluffy and moist they were. I used white whole flour, and the pancakes were still light. I also used leftover mashed roasted butternut squash. What a delicious way to use leftovers and enjoy a weekend breakfast treat! We'll be adding this recipe to our weekend rotation for fall and winter.

    Used left over mashed sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving..they were good...not real light and fluffy like regular pancakes. Didn't have the syrup but next time I try these for sure will use the syrup..I think it will add some "oomph"

    What a festive and delicious breakfast for the holiday season. These pancakes were a delight! I boiled some fresh sweet potatoes and mashed them instead of using canned. I also separated the eggs and beat the whites separately, adding them in at the end. Other than that, I kept the recipe as is and I highly recommend it. As the recipe suggests, the Vanilla-Maple Syrup is the perfect accompaniment. You can find it here: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/vanilla-maple-syrup-10000000264316/ Enjoy!

    Best pancakes ever! I normally would make pumpkin pancakes, but tried this for a change. I followed the recipe as is, using sweet potatoes (not the yams) and they were delicious. Now I know what to do with my leftover sweet potatoes.
