Sweet Potato Pancakes with Homemade Whipped Topping

Pella — 1 large sweet potato, peeled

1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar

4 tablespoons chopped pecans

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups skim milk

1/4 cup butter, melted

Topping (optional)

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pecan halves

1. Dice sweet potato and place in a medium saucepan of boiling water. Cook until tender but firm. Drain and rinse in cool water. Return to saucepan and mash.

2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Add chopped pecans and stir.

3. In another bowl, mix together eggs, milk, sweet potatoes and melted butter. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir well to form a batter.

4. Preheat a lightly greased griddle over medium heat . Drop 1/4 cup of the batter at a time onto griddle. When bubbles begin to surface, flip pancake and cook the other side until golden brown. Repeat, using remaining batter.

5. Place cream in a large bowl. With a hand mixer, beat until just before stiff peaks form. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form. Top pancakes with topping and pecan halves.

Serves 16.
