Sweet Potato Pancakes:
In a large bowl combine dry ingredients.
2 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
5 T white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp. grated cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp. all spice
In another bowl: Wet ingredients.
3 cups buttermilk
2 T. butter melted
3 large eggs separate yolks from white. Reserve whites for later.
4 T. Honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1 large Sweet potato roasted and cooled. Peel it and mash it and mix with these ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones mixing only until combined. Beat the egg whites stiff and fold in to the entire mixture. Batter should stand for one hour.
In a large bowl add all the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and melted butter.
Heat an appropriate sized skillet to the number of pancakes you need to make each time over medium heat. Drop batter by the ladleful onto the skillet and cook until golden brown on each side.
Approx. 5 servings. Serve warm with butter, syrup or warm honey.
