Baked Sweet Potatoes Latkes
- 2 medium-size 0.8-1lb (400-500 grams) sweet potatoes (for a total of 3 cups of shredded sweet potatoes)
- 3 tablespoons (30 grams) all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- cooking spray
*Optional* for serving
- 1 cup (240 ml) sour cream or apple sauce (or both).
- Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Spay/drizzle each baking sheet with a good amount of oil.
- Peel and grate the sweet potatoes using the large holes on the grater.
- Place the grated sweet potatoes into a large bowl. Add flour, eggs, paprika, curry, salt, and pepper and mix well.
- Now it's time to get your hand dirty…scoop a small amount of mixture, press, and shape it into a patty.
- Place on the prepared baking sheet.
- Drizzle or spray oil over the tops of the latkes; it helps to make the edges crispy.
- Bake for 10 minutes, flip the latkes over and continue baking for ten minutes more or until the tops are brown and crisp.
- Serve the latkes hot out of the oven with sour cream and apple sauce.
