Recipe for sweet potato cakes?

When I was doing the slow carb diet I used to make little pancakes using only mashed beans, eggs, spices and soy sauce. They were very tasty and it was a great way to get eggs into my diet because I don't like how they taste.

I want to try to do the same but with sweet potatoes instead of beans. Can anyone who understands cooking suggest a simple recipe? I really just need to know what ratio of eggs to sweet potato might work. Do I need to add baking powder or anything like that? Would this even work? Any suggestions for what herbs and spices go well with sweet potato?

Also note: I do not have a blender and would prefer not to use coconut or almond flour.

Thanks in advance!

It does taste lemony, then BAM! Nail polish remover after taste. =)

Coriander is the seed from the cilantro plant. Tastes totally different. It's often used in Indian cooking. I used to add it to apple pie in a different life-time. IIRC it's sorta lemony, spicy.

I have a jar of turmeric in my cupboard, but haven't used it yet. I may have to open it up soon and try it. Cilantro tastes like nail polish remover to me, so I won't go there! =)

Sounds yum. I found that sweet potato is delicious with a little turmeric and coriander (cilantro). I think I'll try your recipe, mathgirl, with that seasoning.

I honestly don't know what a medium sweet potato is. Unless I am baking, I rarely use measurements when I cook. When you add the egg, if it is too liquid, add more sweet potato. I typically use salt & pepper, but it would be good with salt, cinnamon, and/or nutmeg. I don't eat sweet potatoes often, but when I do, I try to keep it savory so I don't gorge on them and shoot my glucose levels through the roof. =)

Do you add any spices? And do you use a medium sized sweet potato?

That sounds tasty. I have done it with a banana or pumpkin puree, but the sweet potato sounds better.

Mash a cooked sweet potato or yam, mix in an egg, add salt and pepper, and drop spoonfuls into a hot skillet with coconut oil. I've done this with regular potatoes, too. It isn't light and fluffy like a pancake, but they are good.
