Sweet Potato Latkes for 2 ( Easily Doubled) Yummy anytime.
whoops.. wrong Latke....this is more like it....
1 sweet potatoes, peeled and finely shredded
1 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons light olive oil for frying
lightly mix together everything except for the frying oil. Prepare a plate with several paper towels to place Latkes on and more paper towels to place on top to help drain additional oil. When working with hot oil you want to make sure you have everything ready so you are not distracted while frying.
In a very hot pan heat oil carefully. Add the sweet potato mixture with a heaping tablespoon and then spread out quickly with the spoon or fork. Let fry until it is browning around the edge. Flip carefully and brown on other side. Once fully cooked placed on paper towel and top with paper towel and press to dab off excess oil. Continue until all Latkes are cooked. Served hot. Can be served with applesauce , sour cream or any other topping you want to try.
To avoid greasy Latkes, I make sure to press the excess oil out of Latkes with paper towels
