Sweet Potato Pancakes

There are a couple of different ways to make sweet potato pancakes. The traditional way is to make them from shredded potato, like a latke. These can be served at any time of day and usually include diced onion, salt and pepper. Another way you can go is to mix whipped sweet potato into a traditional pancake batter and cook them up on the griddle for breakfast. Maple syrup and butter are a must for the breakfast version, and try adding a sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon for extra yum.
