So…today is National Waffle Day, but mom wasn’t on her game and hadn’t look up a fun and yummy recipe for waffles quite yet. Instead, we made sweet potato pancakes, they’re SO simple. I’m sure I’ll make up for Waffle Day soon – I found a banana nut waffle recipe I want to try, but for now, here’s the Sweet Potato Pancake recipe:
Sweet Potato Pancakes
1 cup water
½ cup sweet potato puree
¼ tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1 cup pancake mix
Directions: Mix water, sweet potato puree and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl. Add the pancake mix (I used Bisquick) and stir just to combine – the batter should be lumpy.
**I steam and puree the sweet potato in batches and then freeze them in 1/2 cup chunks in ziplocks, ready to thaw out when we’re ready for them!Coat griddle with nonstick cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. Spoon batter onto griddle using ¼ cup batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on top, 2-3 minutes.
**I used my Wolfgang Puck Reversible Nonstick Grill/Griddle set to about 250 degrees. I left them for at least 3 minutes. I LOVE this griddle…I bought it at Costco way back when, but would gladly pay the Amazon price. I’ve gotten my moneys worth and then some!
