Another amazing recipe from my friend Erin Fox. These are the best sweet potato pancakes I've ever eaten. The honey butter is to die for!
For the honey-cinnamon butter:
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the sweet-potato pancakes:
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk, plus more if necessary
2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup store-bought pancake mix
1 small pinch ground nutmeg
1 small sweet potato, boiled, peeled, and mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
1. Beat together the butter, honey, and cinnamon until smooth. Transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and oil. Stir in the pancake mix and nutmeg until just combined. Fold in the sweet potato. If the batter seems too thick, add more buttermilk until it reaches the desired consistency (it should be thick but still pourable).
3. Place a large, greased griddle or pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches, spoon the batter onto it and cook until the surface of the pancake is covered with bubbles, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until golden, 1 to 2 minutes more.
Serve, topped with the honey-cinnamon butter, whipped cream, candied pecans and a little maple syrup.
