Baked sweet potato and garden pea pancakes

A very simple recipe today for some baked sweet potato and garden pea fritters that I made recently for lunch. Fritters that are baked is kind of an oxymoron, but I wasn’t sure what else to call them? Patties? Pancakes? Those are also usually fried. So fritters it is.

They’re the easiest thing in the world to make, but do actually take a little while to make, due to the cooking time, but require very little work from the chef. Perfect for a casual lunch time, to serve with a salad.


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 3 tbs ground almonds
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step one: Bake the sweet potato for around 50 minutes to an hour at 180′, depending on the size. You can also microwave it, but I don’t find they cook that evenly – the pointy bits at the ends tend to get overcooked.

Step two: Scoop out the flesh of the sweet potato and mix together with the other ingredients.

Step three: Form into balls and then put onto a greased baking tray, squashing each one down when you put it on to the tray.

Step four: Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes on each side.

The fritters I made held their shape really well and tasted delicious, but I think I might pop them under the grill for a minute or two on each side at the end just to get them a little crispier and brown.

    This sounds great! Any ideas on what could I substitute for the ground almonds?

      You can use regular flour, just make sure to add it slowly to check consistency.
