Sweet Potato Pancakes

Jump to recipe

These Sweet Potato Pancakes are easy to make, they’re delicious, and relatively healthy kind of pancakes. Serve with maple syrup and some butter for an ultimate indulgence.

This post was originally published in June 2015. I have taken and uploaded new photos and slightly tweaked the recipe while the blog post remains unchanged. 

Did you remember a couple weeks ago I was complaining about not having a single donut on my Birthday? Well, you should know that wasn’t the whole truth. And I’m not talking about those bought donuts since who would ever count bought donuts on a food blog, right?

Originally I was thinking about making some donuts to indulge myself, but I abandoned that idea because a few days earlier Sonali published a recipe for Sweet Potato Pancakes which I had been waiting for a few weeks – since that day I saw them on Instagram.

Indeed, these pancakes were a good option for my Birthday. I even was planning to take some pictures but as that sometimes happens, while cooking, I decided I didn’t have the right mood for photographing. I’ve got a theory. It might have been a ploy – to repeat them soon.

That’s why I made them at the end of May again. They turned out great (and even better since the first time I added a bit too many spices). Unfortunately, the pictures didn’t turn well – I got just a few decent. But how could I post a recipe included two or three snaps? That’s not serious, right?!

Thus, I got to enjoy suffer once more. Why suffering? Because it was such a torture taking all these photographs waiting for that moment I would gobble up the pancakes!

These pancakes are absolutely delicious – perhaps, the best pancakes featuring veggies I’ve ever tried. Fluffy, satisfying, with a lovely sweet and savory at the same time aftertaste, and drizzled with the maple syrup – they’re divine! I will definitely make them again, and I even know the way I’m serving them the next time – with maple glazed bacon. That’s going to be so good, isn’t it?

So guys – just don’t waste your time. Make a stack. And then repeat. And once more. No one will judge you. At least I won’t.

    This sounds like a good alternative to doughnuts (donuts? I never know..) on your birthday. (Happy belated by the way)
    Here I am thinking I have made every pancake combo imaginable, but some people can still surprise me. I am intrigued. I definitely need to try this out sometime!

    From the beautiful, inviting stack, butter curls and flowers, this is one heck of a breakfast plate. Don’t leave that fork laying around, I just might “borrow” it. :)
