Sometimes sweet potatoes end up as leftovers. It happens, but by happy chance, they go well in pancake batter and love to dance on a hot griddle. Topped with caramel sauce, butter and toasted cashews, they look nothing like yesterday's forgotten dish. Don't have leftovers? Use canned sweet potatoes. —Sheryl Little, Sherwood, Arkansas
