Since my return from inter-railing around Germany last autumn I have been craving the delicious potato pancakes that my cousin RP made. Perfect fodder for these cold days. Mouth already watering I quickly checked out the recipe. And away I went.
I confess the thought of hand grating numerous potatoes was off putting but modern technology came to the aid of this lazy cook.
Whizz…whizz and hey presto grated potatoes!
Egg, breadcrumbs and seasoning added, frying pan of delight do your stuff.
After several singed efforts and working in a smoke filled room while wafting the smoke alarm the pancakes were rewardingly delicious. I have not managed to replicate the wonderfulness of RPs latkes but with lashings of maple syrup they were pretty good and perfect pancake day practice. I will be re-visiting these little beauties for sure.
Until next we meet.
