Potato Pancakes

Crispy pancakes…….



2 lbs Idaho potato
1-2 large eggs
1 medium onion
1 garlic clove
6 tablespoons all purpose flour or matzo meal
salt, pepper


Peel the potatoes, onion and garlic, then grate them on the grater or blend in the food processor. If potato was very watery pour off the water (drain any excess liquid). Add the eggs, salt, pepper, and flour (you can use also matzo meal because better absorbs the water). Try to cook the first pancake to check that our mixture is fine, if not adjust seasonings or flour.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Place the mixture (small ladle or large wooden spoon) into hot oil creating small pancakes. Fry on both sides until pancakes are golden. Serve hot with sour cream, apple sauce or sugar.


Apple Pancakes

Today I would like to show you how to make Apple Pancakes. They are easy to make. Great for breakfast, lunch, snack or dessert. On of my favorite things to eat as a child. 



Makes around 7 to 8 pancakes.

1 1/2 medium size apple
1 large egg
1 cup of buttermilk
1 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
pinch of salt
oil to fry


In a large bowl mix flour, egg, buttermilk, salt and baking soda. Stir well. Add apples cut in a small thin pieces. Mix everything together. Heat up oil on a frying pan, create small pancakes (fits around 3 on a medium size frying pan) and fry on both sides until golden brown. Take them out and place on a plate with paper towel for an oil to be absorbed. When ready, garnish them with sugar powder. You can also add fresh fruits or maple syrup.
