Mr. Food: Sweet Potato Pancakes

Serves: 8

Preparation Time: 15 min

Cooking Time: 10 min

    1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1 egg, beaten
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    Vegetable oil for frying


    In a large bowl, combine potatoes and onion, egg, flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper; mix well. Form into 8 equal-sized pancakes.
    In a large deep skillet, heat about 1/4 inch of oil over medium-high heat. Place half the pancakes in the oil, without crowding skillet, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden. (If you like them crisper, fry until they're flecked with brown.) Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Repeat with remaining pancakes, and serve hot.
