A special breakfast, in my opinion, calls for pancakes. When I combined my love for pancakes and sweet potatoes, I came up with a winner. We also enjoy these pancakes whenever we have breakfast for dinner.

Pancakes Are Perfect For Breakfast Or Brunch

I love having the entire family over for a special occasion breakfast or brunch (it’s a mom thing).  Spending time with the family is too important to spend all morning in the kitchen. Aunt Jamima helps me spend less time in the kitchen and more time with the family.

You'll never guess what the secret ingredient is in my sweet potato pancakes.

I always rely on Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete Pancake Mix to make me look good and to save time.  That smiling face was always a staple in my mom’s kitchen and you’ll always find Aunt Jemima pancake mix in my pantry and syrup in my refrigerator.

Secret Ingredient for my Light and Fluffy Sweet Potato Pancakes

Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete gives me a headstart on my light and fluffy Sweet Potato Pancakes.  I bet you’ll never guess my secret ingredient!  It’s baby food sweet potatoes! I don’t have time to cook and mash sweet potatoes.  The baby food is the perfect consistency for these pancakes and it’s so convenient.

I LOVE sweet potato pancakes! Unfortunately, my husband isn’t a fan, so we rarely make them, but now I am definitely craving them & will have to make them asap!

you can do that?! I seriously have NEVER thought to add baby food for some extra flavor. I’m not a fan of sweet potato but I’ll be buying some banana baby food to test this on!

Your pancakes remind me of the way my grandmother used to cook them. That reminds me, I should give her a call. While I’m still on the subject I can hardly wait for the day I can refer to my wife as grandma and not get punched in the arm.

I never would have thought to add in baby food, that pure genius. I should do that next time I make them so my kids can get an extra boost.

I’ve never had sweet potato pancakes. I have used baby food in carrot cakes before and it makes them super moist and tasty. I bet this is delicious.

I grew up hating sweet potatoes, but then again the only way I had ever seen them made was the horrible Thanksgiving casserole with tons of marshmallows on them. I have since realized I love them – in almost any other way! I definitely have to try this recipe, and think some real maple syrup and perhaps a sprinkling of chopped pecans would make them heaven!
