Sweet Potato Pancakes with Caramel Sauce Recipe

Sweet Potato Pancakes with Caramel Sauce Recipe

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
