This is an alternative to the traditional potato pancake. Sweet potato pancakes, exotically spiced with cinnamon, curry powder and cumin. Great for Thanksgiving.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Shred the sweet potatoes, and place in a colander to drain for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, white sugar, brown sugar, curry powder and cumin. Make a well in the center, and pour in eggs and milk. Stir until all of the dry ingredients have been absorbed. Stir in sweet potatoes.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop the potato mixture by spoonfuls into the oil, and flatten with the back of the spoon. Fry until golden on both sides, flipping only once. If they are browning too fast, reduce the heat to medium. Remove from the oil, and keep warm while the other pancakes are frying.

Loved it! It was a hit with the guests too. I added some cinnamon and served it with sprinkled powdered sugar. I will make this again (and again and again). Read More

I like sweet potatoes and I like potato pancakes but this was too greasy and had way too much curry. Smelled nice though and my toddler liked having a few bites so that's something. Read More

Wasn't sure about the cinnamon in the write up so I added 1 tsp. I wish I knew how much 1# of grated sweet potatoes was in cup measurement; I think that should have been stated. The pancakes had great taste but with the amount of sweet potatoes I used they came apart when flipping them--the top layer separated off the rest of the pancake! Read More

Use half as much curry-- the taste was way too intense. Also a teaspoon and a half of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg make it a bit sweeter. Read More

I thought I would really love this recipe and found it to be only OK. There was nothing to drain from the potatoes after 10 min per directions. I added a little cinnamon and that worked just fine. I might try them again and serve topped with applesauce. I served with a dollop of FF sour cream and it also made them tastier. Read More
