Sweet Potato Pancakes
15 votes


What follows is the Sweet Potato Pancakes Recipe from CR4YT page 207: Sweet Potatoes are a Vitamin A packed treat. They are lovely when baked, and great in casseroles and stews. These pancakes are a perfect accompaniment to grilled meats and roasts, and are equally delicious with poultry and fish (and good for breakfast too says Tabitha).
