First, you need cooked sweet potatoes for mashing.  This is a perfect way to use leftover sweet potatoes.  If you don’t have any, you can microwave a sweet potato, bake sweet potatoes in the oven or cook sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot.

Spray a large, non-stick frying pan or griddle with a non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. This is a critical step to perfectly cooked pancakes!
