Potato Pancakes


Potato pancakes with a little onion and seasonings.


  • 2 cups grated potatoes, about 1 1/2 pounds potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, grated
  • 1/4 cup milk, scalded
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • parsley
  • vegetable oil


Combine grated potatoes and onion; place in a strainer to allow liquid to drain off into a bowl. When starch has settled, pour water off and add starch back to potatoes. Pour the hot milk over the potatoes, then add the beaten egg. Sift together flour, seasonings, and baking powder, then blend into the potato mixture. If desired, add chopped parsley.

Heat about 1 to 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet (you may use a deep fryer for these). Drop potato mixture by tablespoons into the hot fat. Fry until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
Makes 6 pancakes.
