Sweet Potato Pancakes

Folks are sure to flip over these tastefully different pancakes! "They're a twist on the traditional potato pancake," relates Mari Krajec of Lindenhurst, Illinois. "Sour cream, onion and red pepper give them a unique flavor that everyone seems to love, I usually double the recipe because they disappear so quickly."
