The Flu Craves Pancakes

Fun Food Friday

During my bout with the flu, I craved pancakes so I am sharing a recipe that I made with Lyla.  Actually, I think she did half of the work and, thank goodness, since I was not feeling well.  These turned out to be VERY kid-friendly pancakes, as you will see in the last photo.

Sweet Potato Pancakes
1-1/4 cups flour (I used whole wheat.  You can use whatever you have on hand.)
1 tbsp sugar (I use dark brown.)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup milk (I used soy milk.)
1 cup pureed sweet potatoes (These are from NC.)
 *(Note: You can leave out the sweet potatoes to make regular pancakes.)

                                     *This made more than a cup so I used the leftovers to make Bina some baby food.

 What To Do
1.  Heat pan over medium heat.  If you don't have a nonstick pan, brush some butter or oil or use nonstick spray on the pan so the pancakes don't stick.
2.  Pour batter by spoonfuls (or whatever size you want them to be) into the pan.
3.  Cook until edges look dry.  (These didn't bubble like pancakes usually do.)
4.  Flip and repeat.

This is what the pancakes looked like when they were done.

This is what Lyla's plate looked like when she was done.  Completely kid-friendly.

Enjoy!  Let me know if these were as kid-friendly (or big-kid friendly) for you as they were for us.

I love comments!
