Sweet Potato & Apple Pancakes

I haven't been around for a bit (holiday to visit Mr. Wolfman's family - fun, but a whole other post), but I'm back.  I've been wanting to add recipes to this blog for a bit, so here goes my first:


  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 large apple or pear
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (at least)
  • Butter (a bit)

  1. Dice sweet potato and apple (/pear) and steam or boil until soft (if you boil, drain) and mash with a potato masher.  It doesn't need to be creamy, but there shouldn't be any big chunks.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir until blended, then add eggs and stir until there's no dry powder left.
  3. Stir in mashed stuff.
  4. Add milk.  At least 1.5 cups, but I don't measure it, I just keep adding milk until the mixture is liquidy enough to pour.
  5. Heat a pan on medium-high and add butter - swish it around until it melts.
  6. Pour pancake batter into pan, and cook like normal pancakes*
  7. Put onto a piece of paper towel on a plate.
*More or less.  They don't bubble like normal pancakes, so you'll need to slip a flipper under them to see when they're ready to flip.  It doesn't take very long.

Once they're cool enough, you can either serve them right away, or put them in the fridge (for 2-3 days) or the freezer (not sure for how long) and heat them up later.

The little monster loves these things, and I love them because they don't have any added sugar or salt and have fruit and veg.
