What’s for brunch today?! – Sweet potaot pancakes
Guess what?! I found a recipe and pictures on my computer I actually hadn’t published yet. So despite me not being able to do much cooking at the moment (read this post to find out why) I’ve got a delicious recipe for you today. Today I am sharing one of my favourite brunch recipes with you: Sweet potato pancakes! I love making these when ever I’ve got some more time on my hands in the morning.
Today I am going to show you how to create a sweet version with apple-nut compote as a topping. The apples and nuts perfectly complement the sweetness of the sweet potatoes, just the perfect wintery brunch breakfast.
Imagine sitting inside, cuddled up in a blanket, looking out into a snowy winter day, while eating a stack of scrumptious sweet potato pancakes. Sounds like the perfect winter morning, doesn’t it? So let’s get cooking!
- For the pancakes:
- 100 g sweet potato puree
- 50 g spelt flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp vanilla
- 1 dash of salt
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tbs maple syrup
- 1 dl sparkling water
- coconut oil
- for the Apple-Nut compote:
- 1-2 sour apples, cubed
- 1 handful pecans, roughly chopped
- 1 handful pumpkin seed
- 2 medjool dates, cubed
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- a dash of cinnamon
- maple syrup
- For the compote he t up the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add apples, pecans , pumpkin seed, dates and cinnamon as well as 1dl water. Cover with a lid and let the mixture cook over medium low heat for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile whisk together sweet potato puree, spelt flour, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, sparkling water, maple syrup and baking powder until it forms a smooth batter. Heat up some coconut oil in a pan and use approximately 1 tbs of batter for each pancake. Bake for approx. 2-3 minutes on each s ide over medium heat.
- When all your pancakes are ready, stack the up and top the with the compote and if you like an additional drizzle of maple syrup.
