For a sweet and spicy version of potato pancakes, combine shredded sweet potatoes with eggs, brown sugar, flour, ground cloves and cinnamon. Form into patties and fry in oil until perfectly crispy. Try serving with butter, maple syrup or whipped cream.
This is a pretty good Sweet Potato recipie, however, unless you really LOVE cloves, use a bit less. I tried a 1/2 tea. and they were very nice. Very flavorful and different, my kids loved them! - 15 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very tasty. I prefer nutmeg in sweet potatoes rather than cloves so I substituted and used a 1/2 tsp. This is a keeper. - 09 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were tasty, easy, and cheap, which are my three requirements these days (I live in nowheresville Peru on a peace corps volunteer salary). I love that it snuck some protein in with the eggs, and I actually got a meal of GOOD carbs, instead of white bread, white rice, or pasta. I didn´t have cloves, so I left that out, and I made Pineapple sauce to serve with it. An excellent recipe that I will use a lot! - 10 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
