  • 5 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large sweet potato, roasted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Spiced Pecans:

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter, and then add this to the dry mixture. Peel and mash the sweet potato, place it in a bowl, and then add the honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix it well. Add this mixture into the pancake batter. Let the batter stand for 1 hour (or you can make it a day ahead of time).

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add batter by the ladleful and cook the pancakes, in batches, until golden brown on each side. Serve immediately with Spiced Pecans and Peach Butter.

Spiced Pecans:

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add all the ingredients and cook until the pecans are lightly brown and caramelized, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cool, and store in an airtight container.

Yield: about 1 cup

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Yield: about 1 1/2 cups
