I found this recipe in the Houston Chronicle-so yummy and just in time for Fall. The ideas seem endless, too-if you want to jazz them up. Would be great to make ahead and just reheat on Thanksgiving morning! Enjoy!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  2. Stir together eggs, milk, brown sugar, sweet potatoes, and melted butter. Combine with the flour mixture.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto a hot griddle. Once a few holes appear on the surface, flip. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the pancake springs back when pressed in the center.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped pecans, if desired; then serve with butter and syrup.

I made a double batch so that some could be frozen. When I saw how much batter I had, I opted to make them with a 1/4 cup. They turned out excellent.

Mmmmmm. I used a whole teaspoon of cinnamon and added a bit of nutmeg and vanilla extract as well. I also needed to use additional milk to thin the batter a bit, but I used whole wheat flour, so that may be why. These are fantastic. I always make homemade cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning, but these would be a great Christmas or Thanksgiving morning meal. 11/27/10--A year later, and I'm still making these! As another reviewer mentioned, this is a great way to use up those leftover sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving! The kids didn't care for the Thanksgiving sweet potatoes, but they gobble these pancakes right up! :)

GRREAT! I found this after trying to figure out what to do with leftover sweet potatoes after Thanksgiving. I have made it 5x since then- with a few changes. I use 1/2 c of brwn sugar, nutmeg and cloves- if you have allspice, use that. I found a recipe somewhere online to make crispier waffles- save the egg whites to fold in after you mix the dry and wet. ALthough I would add honey or maple syrup next time so it is a true walk about waffle without the need for syrup. Loved it- just a Hunt remix.
