Sweet potato pancakes with cinnamon honey butter

Makes 10 pancakes


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • Tiny pinch of salt
  • 1 (heaping) tablespoon sugar
  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (or any flavoring that you would like)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes


  1. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients with a fork, and stir well to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, add milk, butter, vanilla and egg, and then make an indentation with your finger in the bowl with dry ingredients. (Like you are digging a hole).
  3. Add wet ingredients, mix until combined, and then stop. You do not want to over mix.
  4. Lightly grease and heat your pancake griddle. Using a ladle or a small measuring cup, add your batter to the griddle, and cook. (You will see bubbles on the edges and that tells you it is time to flip!) 
  5. Cook on both sides until lightly browned.

  • 1 stick butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
