Sweet Potato Cakes

These Sweet Potato Cakes were literally the easiest recipe I have cooked up in a while. I like cooking sweet potatoes for two reasons:

  • If you’re feeling up in the air or swirly whirly, eating a root vegetable is great way to bring in a sense of grounding
  • Um, and reason number two… if you’re feeling a hungry a root vegetable is a great way to bring in a sense of feeling not hungry. (I’m hilarious, I know)

So if you’re in a mood for something warm and comforting with a hint of sweetness, try this sweet potato cake recipe out. Or if you’re like me and you get a copious amount of sweet potatoes in your farm delivery box, this’ll be a great go-to for you. And bonus…my kids loved them because I kept using the word CAKE. tricky tricky.  

 

 

Here’s what you need:  (for a family of four)

  • 1 very large sweet potato
  • Coconut oil
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder
  • Ghee or Grass-Fed Butter
  • Parchment Paper

Here’s what you do:

  • Preheat oven to 400, then line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rub dry potatoes with paper towel to remove dirt.
  • Slice unpeeled Potatoes in large circular sections (as pictured above)
  • Heat coconut oil in heavy skillet on medium heat.
  • Once oil liquifies, place unseasoned potato slices in hot pan.
  • As they are cooking season with seasonings.
  • Sear on each side for 3 minutes. It’s ok if you see dark spots pop up on potatoes from the sear. They aren’t burnt (their just getting yummy for you)
  • Use tongs to transfer sweet potatoes to the pan then place in oven
  • Cook sweet potatoes for 12-15 minutes.
  •         Remove from oven then put a teensy bit of ghee or grass-fed butter on top.
  • Once butter is melted serve right away!

 

The leftovers also work really well for breakfast with a boiled or over-easy egg!
