This makes a thick, fluffy batter. You can find xanthan gum in health food stores or the health-food aisle of some supermarkets. Serve these versatile pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. Or omit the cinnamon and serve with sour cream, chopped chives and smoked salmon. Use two skillets to speed up cooking time.?

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup cornstarch

In large bowl, whisk together cornstarch, flour, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum and cinnamon.

In separate bowl, beat eggs; whisk in buttermilk, butter and brown sugar. Whisk in sweet potato. Add to dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.
