DIY Valentine Day Pancake Mold

DIY Valentine Day Pancake Mold
A great way to start off this Valentine Day is with a delightful breakfast treat.  My love of sweet potato pancakes started with a visit to a diner off the beaten path.  After that day, I made it my responsibility to try sweet potato pancakes in every restaurant that served them.  Unfortunately I came up empty and decided to make my own. After the third batch, I came up with a close contender.  After I mixed the ingredients, I realized I wanted to dye the pancakes pink but had no dye so I used the next best thing……beets.  Trust me, you can’t taste the beet juice at all, and you can build the color intensity to your liking. 

1/2 cup cooked sweet potato
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground spice
1 thin slice of fresh beets juiced (use only 1 tsp of juice)
2 tbls olive oil
1.  Whisk all ingredients together well.
2.  Spray a skillet with pam and place the mold in the skillet. 
3.  Pour the mix into the hot mould and allow to cook 70% before you remove the mold and flip.
4.  Cook the pancake on the opposite side and cook for an additional three minutes.
