These potato pancake recipes are simple and very addictive. Have you tried every potato pancake recipe? They all fall apart when you try to cook them. Especially if the recipe calls for potato pancakes made with mashed potatoes. Well this recipe is a sure fire cure for potato cakes that crumble and fall apart.
I obtained this recipe from a stranger, actually. I went to a gathering with my husband one evening It was made up of some of his old friends. I wasn’t feeling well and expected the night to be long and drawn out. When I got there, kids were running through the house screaming, dogs barking and jumping on everyone. I thought, oh no, this can’t be good. Then I saw the buffet table. It was very delightful and simple. The food looked quite tempting, so I tried a little of everything. When I tasted what I found out to be a piece “baked” potato cake, I got out my steno pad and was ready to take down this scrumtious recipe. The hostess was very sweet and said she had been making the recipe for years and she would be glad to give it to me. All in all, the night turned out to be quite nice. Although, the next day I came down with the flu.
The second potato cake recipe is one of my own that I have been making forever. These pancakes are so good just hot out of the skillet. I often serve them with a meat that doesn’t have a gravy, like fried chicken.
