This German Potato Pancake Recipe, aka Kartoffelpuffer, originated in my kitchen after I had scraped my knuckles grating potatoes. Everyone loved the pancakes, but I had to find easier (and safer) potato pancake recipes. Out came the blender ... the following recipe developed. Best of all, no more scraped knuckles using a blender! No blender? Check Mutti's recipe below.
Mutti's original pancakes have 'shreds' of potatoes. To duplicate this with the blender, do not take potato pancake batter to a 'smoothie' consistency.
The same ingredients as above ... with the following differences in preparation.
In Germany, these pancakes are readily available at outdoor markets and festivals. One of the reasons is that it's easier and doesn't smell up the kitchen with the "frying smells". Never-the-less, fresh, made-at-home potato pancakes are a treat!
