I like to make a big pancake breakfast on a weekend morning. Today I tried out a new recipe - half of my regular recipe, half from my new cookbook, Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. I was very pleased that it turned out so well. I thought the pancakes were fabulous. So here is my new Sunday morning pancake recipe:

1 cup water
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
1-2 tsp cinnamon (I like a lot of cinnamon, I don't really measure it out, I just dump some in)
1 cup flour (I used half white, half white wheat)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 TB canola oil

Combine the water, sweet potato puree and cinnamon. In separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Pour flour mixture into puree mixture and stir just until moist. Heat a griddle to medium low heat. Add oil just before cooking pancakes. Pour batter onto griddle and cook 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve with butter and pure maple syrup.

I imagine that these would be just as good if you used canned pumpkin instead of sweet potato puree. I loved that the batter was a little thicker than my usual pancake recipe, so I got nice thick fluffy pancakes.

*UPDATE* - I tried these again using pumpkin puree, sadly, not so good.

  1. These sound yummy, Andrea. I'm glad your getting good ideas from the Jessica Seinfeld cookbook. I posted a pancake recipe that I LOVE on my blog several days ago. Check it out, you might like it (and I'm sure you could add cinnamon!) : ).
