  • 3/4 cup sweet potato puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • 3/4 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1. Mix the sweet potato puree, eggs, oil, milk, and apple cider vinegar together.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the baking powder, flour, salt, and cinnamon together.
