I usually procrastinate on chores, but this week I filed my taxes. I'm over a month early.
I was excited to file this year because I knew I would receive a refund. I paid a hefty amount in student loans.
I plan is to put most of the refund into a savings account. We'll see how that goes...
This is the second pancake recipe in a row that has not outstanding. These pancakes were flat. I'm going to give this another try in the future with another recipe. I added cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to the original recipe.
The recipe came from food.com. The ingredients are 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato, 1 egg, 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon ginger.
I mashed the sweet potato and added into a bowl with an egg.
I added the flour and baking powder.
I added the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
I stirred in the milk.
I then stirred in the melted butter.
I scooped a quarter cup of the butter into a hot and oiled skillet.
I flipped the pancakes when bubbles started to form in the center of the pancakes. I baked the other side for a few minutes.
I ate mine with whipped cream. Syrup would have been good.
The texture of these pancakes were a little weird. I like a fluffy pancake and these were bland.
I enjoyed the spice blend I used. It was festive and warm. The spices reminded me of Thanksgiving.
I am going to make sweet potato pancakes again, but use a different recipe. I need to redeem myself soon with a outstanding pancake recipe!
