Original german potato pancakes recipe details
This fabulous German specialty is served as a standalone or with a plate of soup ahead. In Germany they will usually be served portion by portion. That means the 3 or 4 pancakes that fit into the skillet will be served to one and the next has to wait until next portion is ready. This will continue until the cook says stop and cares for his own which I recommend. You can’t make them in advance and keep them warm or reheat them. The pancakes will become tough and lose most of their taste.
Ready in: 30 mins
