Sweet Potato Breakfast Pancakes


My family wanted pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. I was all out of pumpkin, but I DID have a can of yams, and this recipe was born. It's a perfect fall breakfast choice!

12 pancakes


Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups baking mix (such as Bisquick ®)

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ cups milk

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed


  1. Mix baking mix, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice together in a large bowl. Beat milk, mashed sweet potatoes, white vinegar, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil together in a separate bowl until smooth; gradually beat into the dry mixture to incorporate into a batter.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add just enough oil to cover the cooking surface and let oil get hot. Pour batter onto hot skillet by 1/4 cup portion, taking care to not overcrowd the skillet. Cook pancakes until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Repeat cooking steps until all batter is used.

Cook's Note:

For creamier flavor, substitute 1 cup milk plus 3/4 cup heavy cream for the 1 3/4 cup of milk.
