Last week I made these sweet potato pancakes at work for our client Scott Farms. We have a portable hob in the office now so I whipped up a batch so we could take some photos for sweet potato Facebook and Twitter. They are naturally sweet and cinnamon-y and because they are made with sweet potato, which by the way is one of your 5 a day (fact!), these are healthier than your average fluffy pancake. Serve with some yoghurt, maple syrup and sliced almonds and you have a yummy breakfast! (or mid morning desk snack)
