Sweet Potato Boxty with Honey Crème Fraiche
Part potato pancake and part latke, this boxty is the perfect balance between the two. Crispy on the exterior and tender in the middle, you can serve this as a side dish or as a base for poached eggs.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
- 1/2cup(125 mL) crème fraiche
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) Ontario Honey

In small bowl, combine crème fraiche, honey and red pepper flakes; set aside.
Batter: In large bowl, combine sweet potato, mashed potatoes, flour, baking soda, green onions, salt and pepper. Stir in buttermilk until well combined.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tsp (5 mL) each of the butter and the oil; heat until butter is melted. Pour 1/4 cup (50 mL) batter for each pancake into skillet.

Repeat with remaining butter, oil and batter.
