Velvety mashed sweet potato makes perfect pancakes

We too have joined the race to get rid of Thanksgiving leftovers in the fastest, tastiest way possible. Our Sweet Potato Casserole recipe lends itself perfectly to cakey, moist pancakes just begging you for copious amounts of maple syrup. In this case, you can add mini-marshmallows if you absolutely have to. (We do).

If you don't have any leftover sweet potatoes, we call that a great Thanksgiving.

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt, sugar and nutmeg and set aside.
