Homemade Sweet Potato Oven Cakes

Enjoy my baked version of the pan-fried potato pancake with applesauce made organically.  This recipe makes 4 servings and is a healthy meal to eat as a side dish or serve with a poached egg for breakfast.


3 medium organic sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
1/2 onion
1/2 cup organic applesauce
4 tbs rice flour  (whole wheat or oat flour can be substituted)
1 tsp organic baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with olive oil or coconut oil
  3. Grate potatoes and onion into a large bowl.  Add applesauce, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly by hand.
  4. Place rounded mounds of the mixture on cookie sheet (about 3" diameter).
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, flip with spatula, and bake on the other side for another 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Serve with more applesauce.

*Sweet potatoes are one of the top vegetable sources of beta-carotene, (vitamin A), which is excellent for your vision and preventing cancer.  They are rich in vitamins C & E that contain potent antioxidants.  Sweet potatoes have a large amount of vitamin B6 and potassium, each helping the body maintain healthy blood flow and normal brain function.

*Sweet potatoes are high in "good" carbohydrates, meaning that although high in fiber, they are low in fat content so that caloric energy is used more slowly and efficiently than a low-fiber carbohydrate.
