These hotcakes are best when topped with extra toasted pecans and maple syrup.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prick sweet potato with a fork several times; microwave at HIGH 5 minutes or until tender. Allow potato to cool at least 10 minutes; peel and mash flesh with a fork, discarding peel. Set aside 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato, and reserve remaining potato for another use.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in pecans. Combine 3/4 cup mashed sweet potato, milk, and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Add sweet potato mixture to flour mixture, stirring well.

Step 3

Working in batches, spoon 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Repeat with remaining batter.

Step 4

Note: Canned mashed sweet potato or pumpkin may be substituted for the cooked mashed sweet potato, if desired.

I made this for my grandparent's for a lunch, and they absolutely loved it! I would like to note that since my grandma couldn't eat nuts, I put those on the side, and I thought just poring some over was really good! These are really good for any occasion, everyone will love them, even those who don't like sweet potatoes! :D

i reviewed these 12/13 and made some minor adjustments that pushed it to 5 stars!! diced the sweet potato and cooked it about 15 min in a little orange juice. easy to mash. saved pecans til later. used 2 + teaspoons pumpkin spice. before turning over i sprinkled on some hormel bacon bits, and caramelized pecans. my fam said they ROCKED!!! i will make them this way from now on. topped with pepper and maple syrup.
