Servings: Makes 24 to 30 pancakes.
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
1 cup (250 mL) chopped green onions
11/2 tbsp. (20 mL) minced jalapeno pepper
1 tsp. (5 mL) minced orange zest
3 large eggs
1/3 cup (75 mL) flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for frying (canola or safflower)
In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, onions, jalapeno, orange zest, eggs and flour. Add seasonings.
Heat oil in a large skillet, over medium-high heat.
Shape about 1/4 cup (50 mL) of sweet potato mixture into a small round pancake, about 3 inches (8 cm) in diameter. Repeat no more than 4 times in order to control cooking.
Turn pancakes after 3 to 5 minutes or when edges lightly brown, and cook another 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove to a baking tray lined with paper towels. Repeat until sweet potato mixture is used up.
Before serving, place baking trays in a 350-degree F (180-degree C) oven 5 minutes or until pancakes are heated through.
Serve three to a plate with a dollop of sour cream in the centre and sprinkle with finely chopped green onions.
