This recipe for sweet potato pancakes has only 2 ingredients would you believe?? It will give you tasty pancakes which are naturally sweet.
The only downside of not using any flour is that the pancakes are a bit difficult to flip (so need to be kept small) and also they are at their best when eaten straight out of the pan.
The pancakes are great served with Maple Turkey Bacon….the combination of maple syrup and turkey fillet bacon is perfect, why have I never thought of it before??
1 medium sweet potato
salt & pepper
100g turkey fillet bacon
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp oil for frying
- Prick the sweet potato with a fork and bake (10 minutes in the microwave or 45 minutes in the oven).
- Once baked, cut open and scoop out the cooked potato inside and leave to cool.
- Combine with the 2 eggs, add plenty of salt and pepper and beat together until smooth.
- Heat up the oil in a frying pan and ladle the mixture in (tip: don’t make the pancakes any larger than your spatula or they will be very difficult to flip). Cook each side until browned, which should only take 3 – 4 minutes.
- Once all of the pancakes are done, add the turkey bacon to the pan (no need to add more oil) and cook until browned on each side.
- Once done, add in the maple syrup, push the bacon around with a fork so it get covered and remove. Serve immediately with the pancakes.

- You can also use cubed sweet potato and boil/steam/microwave it. Just make sure that the cooked sweet potato isn’t too wet (as this will result in soggy pancakes).
