Delicious! I used a little less egg, because the ones I have are huge.They flew of the plate.

Perfect recipe for my leftover Easter yam! I cut mine back to one yam as did your previous reviewer, but will definetely be making extra when I make this for both my veggie lovers and my vegetarian friend. Deliciouly different and a great additon to my cookbook.

Delicious, peppy recipe. I cut the recipe back to one yam (sweet potato) and 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes. Perfect flavour. Instead of pan frying patties I put it all into a shallow baking dish and baked it in 395 oven for 45 minutes - so easy and so good. Thanks for a saver luvcookn 17 March 2015 The Yam cakes were really peppy but I was quite generous this time with the chili. Don't be concerned when you mix the ingredients that with only egg as the binder that they may not hold together. Well not only do they work they are so darn good that I could make a meal out of just them. I took a photo of them just mixed so you can see the texture. Will be made again and again.
