Sweet Potato Pancakes

READY IN: 14mins
Recipe by Ravenseyes

This is one of my all time favorite recipes its great for a Sunday morning brunch - especially if you had baked sweet potatoes the night before because you just save one for the breakfast the next day - I use the orange colored sweet potato as it seems to retain the most moisture and has the best flavor.

Batter was so thick couldn't pour into skillet and the pancakes wouldn't cook all the way through becuse of the thickness. I followed the recipe to the tee with the exception of using white whole wheat flour and buttermilk. I skipped the pecans. I'm not sure I will try this recipe again.
