    4. In a skillet (I used cast iron), pour coconut oil and heat over medium until your cast iron is hot. If you have a thermometer, it should read 350 degrees. Then drop in sweet potato "cakes" in about 2-3 tablespoon batches. Flatten them with a spatula. Cook on each side for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

    5. Once cooked, place on a plate with paper towels to drain the oil. Serve HOT!
