Sweet Potato Latkes with Cinnamon

Sweet Potato Latkes with Cinnamon
Recipe type: Desserts
Serves: 1 batch
  • 15 ounce can of pumpkin or, sweet potato puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  1. Mix pureed sweet potato or pumpkin with flour, spices (I made these very spicy, but you can lessen the spice for a more mild flavor), and sugar. Drop spoonfuls (carefully--oil can really burn) into pre-heated oil. Fry each side for about three minutes, or until light brown. Lightly lift out of the hot oil with a slotted spatula and place on a pan or tray lined with paper towels.
  2. The latkes can then be eaten right away or kept in a 300 degree oven to stay warm.
