Amazing flavor with a fluffy texture!


  • 1 sweet potato medium sized
  • 1/2 lb. fresh pork (breakfast) sausage
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 lg. eggs beaten
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil


Prick sweet potato several times with a fork. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, rotate, continue microwaving until potato is cooked through, approximately 3 - 5 minutes. Cool; then peel and mash; set aside.

Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook until fully cooked through, approximately 4 - 5 minutes, being sure to crumble into small pieces as it cooks. Drain well, set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, brown sugar and salt. In a medium bowl, mix together the egg, milk, maple syrup, and the vegetable oil; add to flour mixture, mix until fully combined. Add in the reserved sweet potato and reserved sausage; mix until fully combined.

Heat a griddle over medium-high heat; add enough vegetable oil to lightly grease griddle. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto griddle and cook until pancake has a bubbly surface and slightly dry edges; turn and cook on second side until brown and cooked through. Serve pancakes with maple syrup on the side.
