Sweet Potato Pancakes for Weekend Brunching

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, brunch is the best meal of the day!  I love American style pancakes, all light and fluffy, and served with bacon and maple syrup. The addition of sweet potato here is a perfect fit – it makes them savoury, but not so savoury the maple syrup feels out of place.  You could say they’re healthy too – sweet potato is good for you after all!

For these, I cooked the sweet potato in advance by cutting it into chunks and boiling for twenty minutes or so.  This recipe makes enough to serve 2-3 people.  I’ve adapted it from a US recipe so the measurements are all in cups.
