Sweet Potato Pancakes

Going to Sunday market was so fun today! I actually got a feeling of elation in my heart and chest, just having the money to spend. Usually I have, say 65 cents, and I dicker on 3 potatoes and 2 carrots and an avocado, for instance. And today I could buy whatever I wanted! I had ten dollars! And actually looked at things with interest, oh my gosh, What a different world it is with cash in your pocket.

  4. Throw a few sprinkles of water on the griddle. If they jump, it’s ready.
  5. Pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto the pan and cook 1-2 minutes on the first side.
  6. If there are bubbles in the batter and the bottom is golden, it’s time to flip it.
  7. Flip and cook for 30 seconds to 0ne minute.
  8. Serve warm with Stevia syrup (see recipe this blog), honey or fruit jam. (See recipe this blog.)
