These were wonderful! Would be great for Thanksgiving time especially. I made two modifications to cut down on the fat: used only 2 Tbl. butter and used skim milk. I thought there was too much nutmeg flavor, so next time I will reduce to 1/4 tsp. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla, and will definitely do that again. Note that 3/4 lb. potatoes is the same as 2 1/2 cups cut up (in case you don't have a scale). I peeled and cut the potato into chunks before boiling, so I omitted the skin removal and mashing steps (they mashed very easily when blending with a mixer with the other ingredients). I mixed all wet ingredients with the potatoes in one bowl, then mixed all the dry ingredients in another bowl, putting them together at the end. I did have to add more milk (almost 1/2 cup) to make them more spreadable. Thanks so much for the recipe!
hard to cook so the middle isn't gooey.
I decided to try altering this recipe and it was great (adults and kids alike!). Instead of the 1-1/2 cups flour - I used 1 cup flour and 1/2 cups rolled oats. (seemed to really hold well and have a fluffy pancake - tasted great too!) I also added 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp pure vanilla extract. We served it w/cinnamon sugar butter and all loved them!
This was awesome! Add chopped pecans to the batter or sprinkle them on top for a real Louisiana flavor. We froze half the batter for later use, and it was even tastier than the first day. I think the key is to let it sit for a while to really bring out the taste of the potatoes.
I made the recipe as written. These pancakes were awesome. I wasn't sure what 3/4lb of sweet potatoes comes out to so I used one cup mashed sweet potatoes and that was perfect. This recipes is a keeper for my family!
I really enjoyed this recipe. I omitted the butter, used whole wheat flour, used 1/2 cup oats in place of 1/2 cup flour, and added about a 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon and vanilla. I put the batter in the fridge over night and added a little extra milk in the morning. The first batch I made tasted doughy in the middle so the next batch I took the back of a spoon and spread out the batter. Very good!
I made this with canned sweet potatoes in syrup. I also added ginger and cinnamon to the batter. I used self rising flour and omitted the salt and levening. These turned out excellent! I am going to try it with canned pumpkin next.
This was soooo great. My mom grew some really giant sweet potatos and I didn't know what to do with them all. This recipe was wonderful! I even made them, placed them on a cookie sheet and froze them, then put them in ziploc bags, sonow when we want one or two (or for dinner) they are already made, I just have to nuke them for a moment or so.
