These pancakes will vary in hue from orange to gold to cream depending on the flesh colour of the potatoes or sweet potatoes used. Choose any good frying potato from the many varieties now available. Sweet potatoes not only add bright colour, but also lots of vitamin A.
- 12 ounces sweet potatoes or potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 3 lightly beaten eggs
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 ounces cooking oil
- Sour cream
- Applesauce or slightly sweetened cooked pureed apple
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the potatoes, onion and eggs. Add the flour, salt and pepper; stir till combined.
In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil; spoon the pancake batter into the frying pan, using 2 ounces of batter for each pancake. Cook for about 5 minutes, or till golden brown, turning once. Add additional oil as necessary during cooking. Drain on paper towels.
Keep the pancakes warm in a preheated 300 degrees F oven while cooking remaining pancakes. Serve hot with sour cream and apple sauce or pureed apple.
