Sweet potato puree (batch cooking idea):
Bake one large sweet potato or two small potatoes for one hour and 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven. You can also peel chop and boil sweet potatoes in a cooking pot for 15 to 20 minutes. With an emersion blender or potato masher puree the potatoes. You will need one cup for this recipe. This should be done in advance. The puree will last for about 2 weeks in the refrigerator, add to soups, oatmeal porridge or smoothie. You can also freeze in one cup portions in zip lock bags for future pancake mornings. Label with date and use within six months.
Debbie’s Notes (serving pancakes):
- For a crowd keep pancakes warm in the oven (200º) on a wire rack set on a baking sheet until ready to serve.
- Serve with vegan butter and maple syrup.
- For a brunch buffet, serve pancakes on a large platter with fresh berries, drizzle with maple syrup, add several mint leaves to the plate. This platter can be served at room temperature.
- You can make the pancakes ahead and allow the syrup to penetrate the dough overnight, top with berries in the morning just before serving.
- These pancakes freeze well.
