Sorry about being a day late with this post. Let's just pretend it is Monday for a minute OK.
Monday's are a beast at the best of times-waking up to an alarm, getting on schedule, work, school, housework. I am not a huge fan of making breakfast on most days but especially not Monday's. So when I was searching for a recipe for this week and came across sweet potato pancake mix that you make the night before I thought it would be perfect-one less thing to do Monday morning.
The Recipe: (courtesy of Deceptively Delicious)
1/2 cup pureed sweet potatoes
1 cup pancake mix
1 cup water
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I used cinnamon sugar-and I added a generous 1 tsp)
Mix all ingredients together (batter should be lumpy). Cover and refrigerate overnight. Cook as you would normal pancakes.
These were a huge hit. I was prepped with a new name for them (pumpkin bread pancakes is what I was going to call them because I was worried small fry would notice they looked different-but she didn't notice a difference and gobled them up so fast). They were super good.
I didn't have any sweet potatoes, but I did have a can of yams. I drained off most of the liquid and then pureed them in my blender (you may need to add some additional water so that they will blend).
