A second chance for the oh-so-sweet, sweet potato…no marshmallows with these; just our good old friend, maple syrup. A nice balance of sweet and spicy (there’s that combination again) but not overly sweet, plus the Greek yogurt makes a rich counterpart. These cakes will scorch when you’re not watching…so look alive and practice your wrist flipping skills.   Just in time for Passover/Easter …wow the elders with these faux latkes.

Grapeseed oil for frying

  1. Make curried Greek yogurt by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl…easy
  2. Saute onion in a bit of oil on med-low for about 10 min.
  3. Make cakes by placing shredded potato in a large bowl and toss w/salt, letting it stand for 5 min.

  5. Form mixture into 8-10 cakes. Heat griddle or large pan to medium. Coat with oil. (I used grapeseed oil because it can withstand a higher heat without smoking). Place potato cakes on griddle and cook for 8-10 until crispy and brown, flattening with spatula as they cook…
  6. Serve while crisp with Curried Greek Yogurt.
