Bake as a yummy alternative for Thanksgiving breakfast. This recipe could also be your new favourite side dish to any savoury meal! Take a break from cornbread or give a sweet sidekick to your stews. Haleigh says she even enjoys this recipe with curry.

  • 1 mashed or puréed sweet potato

  • 1 cup buttermilk pancake mix

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I use vanilla)

  • Maple syrup and salt to taste

  • 1 tablespoon of butter, plus more for serving


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.

  2. Mix the prepared sweet potato, pancake mix, and yogurt together.

  3. Stir in maple syrup and sea salt to taste (I use about 2–3 tablespoons of syrup and a pinch of salt).

  4. Place batter on a parchment lined tray (see photo).

  5. Add a dollop of butter on top of the center (about 1 tablespoon).

  6. Drizzle with about 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.

  7. Bake for 15–20 minutes (or until crust develops).

  8. Let cool and slice.

  9. Serve with butter on top (optional).

Haleigh Dookram is a professional photographer and food blogger in Ontario, Canada. From her dad’s stories of fresh mangoes and wild toucans in South America to her mom’s sweet memories of decadent Mennonite cream puffs, growing up in a multiethnic family meant food was always about more than just consumption—food was a connection. After Haleigh graduated with her creative photography diploma, she found a new opportunity to connect back to her roots through her sweet food blog. The magic reignited with flour sifting through the air, butter sizzling in the saucepan, and the vibrant pop of aromatic herbs and spices filling her kitchen. Haleigh found a story—the same story she was raised with—that food has a story, and capturing it is a dance.
