Sweet Potato Waffles for Mother's Day

With Mother's Day fast approaching, I couldn't wait to share this favorite sweet potato waffle recipe that serves both as delicious homemade brunch option and a special treat sure to make mom feel appreciated and celebrated. The creamy and flavorful batter combines a classic base batter recipe and sweet potato puree — the two come together, creating an airy waffle with big flavor for an instant crowd pleaser.


Sweet potato puree
  • 1 medium sweet potato, roasted
  • 3T milk or buttermilk
  • 1T butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup, walnut pieces
  • Healthy sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2T baking powder
  • 2T sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups of milk 
  • 1 egg
  • Your favorite maple syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Chopped walnuts

To make the puree, first roast the sweet potato by wrapping the scrubbed potato loosely in aluminum foil. Place in a 400° oven for 40 minutes. Flip the potato halfway through the cooking time;  once done allow to cool and scoop the soft potato from the skin and set aside. Turn on your waffle iron, allowing it to heat up while finishing the puree and making the waffle batter. Spray both sides with non stick coating.

Blend the roasted sweet potato, buttermilk, melted butter, cinnamon and vanilla until smooth and creamy in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together remaining batter ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, milk, egg and salt). Whisk until smooth. Slowly incorporate the sweet potato mixture into the flour batter until smooth.

Ladle about 1 cup of batter onto the preheated waffle iron, cooking until brown and easily lifting away cleanly from the griddle.

To serve, top with your favorite syrup, whipped cream and sprinkle with additional walnuts.

To my mom and all the other moms in my life Happy Mother's Day!
