2 sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 T brown sugar
2 T all-purpose flour
2 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Place potatoes in a colander. Place cheesecloth over the potatoes and squeeze
the potatoes to release as much liquid as possible. Let the potatoes sit to
release more liquid, squeeze again.
Combine potatoes, eggs, brown sugar, flour, cloves, and cinnamon; mix well.
Form mixture into pancake size cakes and fry in a large frying pan in hot oil.
Flip cakes over after 2 to 3 minutes (when bottom is browned) and brown other
side. Drain on paper towels and serve piping hot.
Makes 8 to 12 latkes.
