Sweet Potato Pancakes

I like to make these sweet potato pancakes in the fall, just as the weather starts to turn colder. Sweet and spicy, this sweet potato pancakes recipe uses mace to bring out the flavor of the sweet potatoes.

Feel free to substitute pecans for the walnuts in this recipe for sweet potato pancakes.
