      Here you go!

      Sweet Potato Pancakes

      Ingredients:
      1 cup all-purpose flour
      1 teaspoon baking powder
      1/2 teaspoon baking soda
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
      1 large egg, lightly beaten
      1 1/2 cups buttermilk (I prefer Clover – it really makes a difference in taste and rise!)
      2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus ½ teaspoon for griddle
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
      1 sweet potato, cooked (can be boiled, or baked in oven or microwaved), peeled and mashed

      Directions:
      Heat griddle to 375 degrees.

      Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl.

      Add egg, buttermilk, and 2 tablespoons butter using a whisk until just combined. Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg, followed by the mashed sweet potato. Do not over mix; the batter should have small lumps.

      Test griddle by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If water bounces and spatters off griddle, it is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining ½ teaspoon of butter onto griddle. Wipe off excess with a paper towel.

      Using an ice cream scoop or ladle, pour pancake batter (about half a cup), 2 inches away from one other. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2½ minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.

      Serve warm with a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
