There’s nothing like good old fashioned potato pancakes as a side dish. It’s an awesome way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. You can serve these potato pancakes with meat patties, or simply enjoy them as breakfast.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and blessed Christmas and success and health for the New Year 2012!

So wünsche ich Euch von Herzen ein frohes und gesegnetes Weihnachtsfest und viel Erfolg und Gesundheit für das Neue Jahr 2012!

  • 200 g Potatoes
  • 75 g Whole grain spelt flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 100 ml Milk
  • Salt and white pepper
  • 3-4 tbsp Butter
  1. Thoroughly clean the potatoes and place them in a medium sized pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Add in about 1 teaspoon of salt. Cook, uncovered, until potatoes are tender all the way through, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain potatoes and let cool slightly. Peel the potato and push potatoes through a ricer into a large bowl or mash with a large fork thoroughly. Add in spelt flour and baking powder, then add in whole egg and egg yolk. Gradually pour in milk, stirring well to make a smooth batter. Season the batter with salt and pepper.
  3. Place 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When the butter turns a light amber, drop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the batter in the skillet. You should be able to cook 3 pancakes at a time, allowing enough space between them so they have a nice round shape.
  4. Cook about 2 minutes on the first side, flip them over and cook about 1 minute longer. Remove from the pan, and keep warm. Continue adding butter to the pan and frying the rest of the batter. Serve the pancakes warm as a side with ground meat patties.

I'm going to have to try these. We've never had potato pancakes with mashed, I usually just grate them. They look fantastic, I'll have to try the mashed now.
Happy holidays, Angie, to you and yours!

I completely agree; there's nothing like a good old-fashioned potato pancake! My grandparents make them from scratch and they're too die for. Yours look delicious!

I always think of pancakes as a breakfast item - it never occurred to me to make a side-dish style pancake! Brilliant! Thanks for sharing and new ideas!

Elisabeth 28/12/11 14:43

In our household, we are huge pancake and waffle eaters. I have been wanting to buy spelt flour, every time I visit our Whole Foods Market, and I put it on my list to buy some on my next trip, and for sure I want to make these delicious, tasty, and hardy potato pancake. Love how your turned out, and it's not just for breakfast but for any/every meal. Yumm!
Angie, I would love to make broccoli rabe for you, or any other dishes if you come to visit! That's for sure:DDD

Ambreen (Simply Sweet n Savory) 28/12/11 14:46

Looks absolutely wonderful! Hope you had a lovely Christmas. Wishing you a very Happy New Year :)

TinaRBK 28/12/11 19:20

These potato pancakes look so silky smooth and toasty, I would have never thought they were made with potatoes! These are definitely worth a try in the kitchen-yum!
Have a wonderful New Year and I look forward to seeing your posts in 2012!

T and Tea Cake 29/12/11 00:23

Eine frohe Zeit zwischen den Festtagen wünsche ich dir! ;)

How great is that? I have never thought of making potato pancakes as a side dish! I'm not much of a fan of plain potatoes, so I'll keep this recipe in mind next time I'm making a 'served with potatoes'-kind of dish!


Reeni 29/12/11 03:32

This is timely as I just bought spelt flour for the first time! I need good ideas like this! So delicious and satisfying.

vianney 29/12/11 05:17

Delish, I know I could a huge pile of these pancakes. Happy Holidays!!

JasmyneTea 29/12/11 07:11

An amazing dish, and beautiful photos as always :) happy new year!

What's Baking?? 29/12/11 10:59

What's spelt flour? Don't think we have it here in Malaysia as I've not come across it. Can I substitute with wheat flour?

Magic of Spice 29/12/11 17:49

I just had spelt pasta for the first time recently and loved it :) These are fantastic!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, wishing you an amazing 2012 Angie!

Russell at Chasing Delicious 29/12/11 19:27

Wow. What a recipe! I am definitely going to try these soon.

Rosita Vargas 29/12/11 23:36

Los crepés lucen deliciosos.Angie te deseo un gran Año Nuevo lleno de bendiciones,abrazos hugs,hugs.

Katie Mar 29/12/11 23:37

mmmmm talk about healthy pancakes. these look delicious and hearty

Janine 30/12/11 04:13

finally got myself spelt flour so that i can start baking all the goodies that you've been posting with spelt flour :) can't wait to start with this since it's so simple!

Anonymous 30/12/11 04:53

Happy New Year, Angie. I have never cooked with spelt flour. I guess, I should try it. Love those pancakes.

tigerfish 30/12/11 05:41

Great way to pair those pancakes with meat balls/patties :)

Victor 30/12/11 05:49

I don't recall if I tried making savory pancakes with potatoes, this does sound like a great idea with meatballs.

Happy Holidays, Angie!

Mike 30/12/11 13:49

Haven't tried to make meal in this combination but I love to cook potato pancakes.
But let's give a try for your recommendation as you can't go wrong with potato and grain spelt

Nicole Gamble 31/12/11 14:15

So simple and so perfect! Yammy! Thanks for sharing!

Anonymous 1/1/12 11:26
