Zanna’s sweet potato pancakes

February 28 2017

Ingredients (serves ones):

  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Toppings of your choice, such as feta, poached eggs, or yoghurt and fruit, to serve

Method:

  1. Pierce the sweet potato and place it in the microwave. Then cook on high for 5-7 minutes until cooked through (alternatively, pierce and bake in the oven until tender). Leave for a few minutes until cool enough to handle and then remove the potato from its skin.
  1. Add 150g (5oz) of the sweet potato to a blender with the eggs and blitz to form a smooth batter.
  1. Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat and put a 5cm-wide dollop of the batter in the centre.
  1. Fry gently for 30-60 seconds until the base is firm, then flip with a spatula and continue frying for a further 30-60 seconds until cooked through and golden brown.
  1. Remove from the heat, and then repeat with the remaining batter to produce 5-6 pancakes. Serve with toppings of your choice.
