With the beginning of fall I have decided to do a pancake bonanza!
After all, what goes better with fall, beautiful weather, a clean apartment, sunlight than pancakes?
As we know, Saturday I made Almond Oat Pancakes but Sunday, I made Sweet Potato Waffles from a recipe I found in The Sugar Mill Caribbean Cookbook.
Sweet-Potato Waffles with Orange Butter
Adapted from The Sugar Mill Caribbean Cookbook by Jinx and Jefferson Morgan
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 T curacao liquor
1 T grated orange zest
(I'll add here that I didn't make the orange butter- I just put my own homemade jam on)
2 Cups flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups cooked, pureed sweet potatoes
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup melted butter
2 T grated orange zest (I also didn't use this- basically I didn't have oranges)
Whip together ingredients for orange butter in a small bowl until mixture is fluffy and put aside.
Sift first first 3 ingredients and set bowl aside. In another bowl, combine egg yolks, sweet potatoes, milk, sugar and butter and add to flour mixture. Beat egg whites until they are light and fluffy and fold into mixture.
Cook away in a hot waffle iron!
The recipe recommends that you serve it with orange butter, maple syrup and garnish with orange slices (I just used salted butter and jam).
Later this week I plan on making Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes and Hearty Raspberry Pancakes! Can't wait!!
