Hazel and I went with my husband on a work trip in Iskut. I'm pretty proud of my pictures so first you gotta look at them and then we'll move on to the recipe. K?
We are staying at a place called Tatogga Lake Resort, six hours north of Terrace, BC.
I love what the word 'resort' can get away with. But it is sweet - classic Canadiana. The real deal. Taxidermy, log cabins, creaky floors, antlers. (A lot of antlers). And the restaurant offers one meal for dinner.
It really is a 'take it or leave it' kinda place. And when the next stop is at least 150 K's away, I'd assume most people take it.
God though, it is so refreshing to be surrounded by trees, rivers, mountains and a big cold lake. Even the threat of grizzlys and wolves add that wild and adventerous 'I'm not in Kansas anymore' feel.
The simplicity and crispness of it all is such a cure for thinking too much and other such disorders I seem to suffer from. Its amazing how nature can just clear confused brains.
SO. Now. Onto the pancakes.
Remember the 2 ingredient banana pancakes I posted a while back? Well this one is less tropical and more root-y. It's the same thing but with sweet potato instead of banana. I thought that was pretty cool so when I heard about it I gave it a try. Loved them. And they were a reliable go-to snack for Hazel for a couple of days.
If I'm going to be totally honest - these pics were actually from another sweet potato pancake recipe I tried. They didnt make the cut for many reasons. But I was proud of these pics which I made all by myself yes I did. So these pancakes will actually turn out smaller and thinner than the ones in this pic. Cool? Cool.
Here it is...
2 Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes
1 medium sized sweet potato
1/2 tsp of cinnamon (optional)
Chop, boil and mash the sweet potato.
Mix it with 2 eggs (I used a blender)
Add cinnamon if desired
Pour small amounts onto a hot pan (med-hi heat)
Once they are ready to flip (they'll start to bubble a bit) flip 'em
You can top these with maple syrup but they are also reeeeeally good with greek yogurt mixed with a bit of cinnamon.
That's it, that's all.
