Sweet Potato Cakes

The first recipe we tried from Anni's Organically raised was the sweet potato cakes.  I let my children sit down with the cook book to pick what they wanted to try first.  As they ooh'd and aah'd over the very cute photos in the book, the two of them settled on the sweet potato cakes.

My kids are very different.  My son is not a picky eater, and he is typically willing to try anything once.  My daughter on the other hand is a macaroni and cheese connoisseur since that's just about all she eats.  She was willing to try this recipe because she was involved with the process.  We went to whole foods together, and picked out the organic vegetable ingredients.  She felt so proud with her child size grocery cart.

In the end, she ate a few of these, and that says a lot for her.  If it's not macaroni and cheese, it's pretty much not worth her time.  Anni's recipes incorporate ingredients that simply taste good, good choices of cheeses and pan fried onions really took this simple recipe to the next level.  They were also delicious cold, which was perfect for in between meal snacks.

My son loved these so much he asked if I could make them on his birthday.  He says, "They are cakes afterall."  He ate most of these, stuffed himself silly like a growing boy should.  We're excited to try more recipes.  I keep trying to hide from my daughter that there is a macaroni and cheese recipe in here.  I'll make it for her soon. :)

Don't forget to enter into my giveaway for Anni's book, Organically Raised!


  1. Yum - looks like a delish recipe! I love to cook :) I was entering a giveaway and saw your comments aren't numbered. Mine weren't for a while and it made counting out the winner a PAIN. I used this tutorial to edit my HTML code - only steps 1 and 2 since I didn't care for the bubble-style comments. Not trying to be bossy - just thought it might help you out :)

  2. Oh wow, you're right! They don't have numbers. Last month during that giveaway I had a different lay out that was numbered so I didn't even think about it. Thanks!
