This month we are heading to Germany for the International Food Challenge and we are exploring Bavarian cuisine, hosted by Saraswati of Sara's Kitchen. Bavarian cuisine typically includes meat, bread and potato dishes with the prominent use of flour. Sara suggested few authentic recipes from the Bavarian cuisine and out of them I made these Bavarian style potato pancakes.
Kartoffelpuffer are German potato pancakes made from grated potatoes, onions, eggs and flour. They are also called reibekuchen or kartoffenkuche. These pancakes are very popular in Germany especially during colder months and are usually found at outdoor markets and festivals. Serve the pancakes hot with your breakfast or as a light snack along with apple sauce, berry jam or some honey.
Notes and Tips
- If your potatoes are very large, add another egg white.
- If you are skipping the eggs, add more flour to bind.
