Sweet Potato Pancakes with Cereal Crumble


A few words...

Mornings are not complete until a stack of pancakes has been placed down in front of us. These sweet potato pancakes are perfect for any morning! Roast sweet potatoes to make your own puree or use canned; either way, you'll still have a fluffy, homemade pancake that's better than any box mix could me.. I'm a chef!


1 3/4 c.all-purpose flour 
2 tsp.baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tablespoon Tastic Sweet 
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 small sweet potatoes, roasted and pureed until smooth (about ¾ cup puree)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Cereal Crumble

 1/2 cup pecans

1/2 cup corn flakes

1/4 cup oatmeal

2 tablespoons brown sugar 

1 tablespoon orange zest

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. 
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk and sweet potato puree, then add eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.

Cook until bubbles start to form in batter and pancake is golden underneath, about 3 minutes, then flip and cook other side until golden, another 3 minutes.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter.
