TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 6 cups shredded sweet potatoes (about 3 large)
  • 3 cups shredded peeled apples (about 3 large)
  • 1/3 cup grated onion
  • 1/2 cup canola oil


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, brown sugar and cinnamon until blended; beat in sour cream. Set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, flour, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add the sweet potatoes, apples and onion; toss to coat.

"These are yummy, especially with the topping. I did not add the onion, and I'm considering leaving out the apples next time time since you couldn't really taste them."

"These were delicious but don't be fooled this is like a sweet potato latke not a pancake. It does not resemble the texture of a pancake but more like a latke. The cream on top really added the extra bang and you could also make the cream as a spread for bagels."
