Potato Pancakes

Potato Pancakes originate from Poland and are great on their own or as a side dish. You can add to the flavour of your pancakes in a variety of ways, just add any vegetables you have leftover in the cupboard! You’ll find it best to serve them hot, dolloped with sour cream.

Serves 6


  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled (you can use our baking, chipping or roasting potatoes)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Finely grate potatoes and drain any liquid by wrapping in a clean tea towel and wringing out.
  2. Place potatoes in a large bowl.
  3. Add the egg, onion, flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder; mix well.
  4. In a large skillet heat the oil over a medium heat.
  5. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls; press lightly to flatten.
  6. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
