Sweet potatoes have certainly made a name for themselves in our kitchens in recent years. Sweet potato fries, baked sweet potato, sweet potato curry, sweet potato chilli – the list goes on. However, my sweet potato creation is not a traditional savoury dish, but rather a sweet one. These sweet potato pancakes are perfect for brunch. Although this recipe takes a little time to prepare, I don't think there's anything better than home-made pancakes on a cold Sunday morning. I serve my sweet potato pancakes with a delicious apple & nut compote. Of course, you can also use other toppings such as fresh fruit, coconut yoghurt or simply maple syrup.
