You guys know I can’t leave a waffle or pancake recipe alone, right?
I try! I really try to just follow the recipe, but inevitably, my head gets some wild idea and I have to change it up at the last second.
This morning I was bound and determined to just make plain waffles. So I googled a really simple recipe and got to work.
But as I started mixing things together my head got to thinking…
what if I add less milk and something else?
what if I took out one egg?
what if I took out the oil?
what if I used that sweet potato that’s in the fridge?
And that’s how another waffle recipe was born. Sans oil and plus sweet potato.
Sweet Potato Waffles

- 1 cups all-purpose flour

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine milk, sweet potato and egg until smooth.
Combine the wet into the dry. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden.
