2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

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, recipe follows

Peach Butter, recipe follows

Spiced Pecans:

1 cup pecans, chopped

1/2 tablespoon butter

1/2 tablespoon tupelo honey

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Peach Butter:

1/2 cup peaches, peeled and diced

1/2 pound butter, softened

1/4 cup brown sugar

Pinch sea salt


  1. 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).
  2. 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.

Peach Butter:

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