This is a simple and tasty variation on a South African dessert favorite, pancakes with cinnamon sugar. The beet adds a delicious natural sweetness and flavor, and the resulting red color makes this a delight to present to the table.
In South Africa, we call these "pancakes," though they differ a lot from those in the United States. Ours are very thin, and about 25 cm (10 inches) in diameter--similar to French crepes. You may substitute lemon juice for the vinegar, if you prefer.
