  2. Sift the flour, cinnamon, mixed spice and baking powder into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, 270g of the yogurt and the sweet potato, then pour in the dry ingredients and whisk into a smooth thick batter.
  4. Brush a waffle iron liberally with groundnut oil and heat then cook the batter in batches.
  5. Pour the frozen berries into a small saucepan and heat until warm and defrosted.
  6. Plate the waffles and top with the hot berries and remaining yogurt and drizzle over a little maple syrup to serve.
