Potato pancakes (placki ziemniaczane)

The Tuesday is over according to my clock, but here's my "Show me on a Tusday... a simple recipe" entry. Potato pancakes is my number 2 (after pierogi) favourite meal. Unfortunatelly it's not really healthy and must have thousands of calories, so I don't eat them often. But I get really wild when my dad makes them :D Unfortunatelly, for some misterious reason, although I make them from the same recipe as my dad, they don't come up so good, huh. I must admit he's potato pancakes master :P

  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 table spoon of flour (or more if it's needed)
  • 1 egg
  • some salt, pepper and some oil

How to do it?

Grate potatoes and onion. Mix them with flour, egg, add salt and pepper. Fry (on big heat).
Most people sprinkle the pancakes with sugar but I prefer without.

Enjoy :)


  1. Thanks for joining me in this mission again. oh I'm definately trying this, this weekend as I love potatoes and those looks great. Is is plain flour you use for this one?

  2. oh, this one comes just in time!! We've been at the Christmas market yesterday and hubby ate something like that, so we decided we could have those more often at home ^^ Thank you so much!

  3. @ Bubbles Yes, just plain flour. But usually one tablespoon isn't enough, so a bit more.

    @ Tankuki You welcome^^

  4. Oh, my...I will have to try this, as I love my potatoes. :D

  5. Hello in my blog Lonestar :D Yes, try. Potato pancakes rock^^
