    My grandmother cooked a pancake on the stove in a large frying pan. It completely filled the pan and I remember that it contained a lot of eggs and no baking powder or soda. The texture was somewhat custardy. She would serve it with a raspberry syrup.

    She called it a mushroom pancake, because after flipping, it would raise up in the middle. ( I think that a big air bubble formed underneath it.)

    Does anyone know the name or have a recipe for this?

    Thanks,
    Mary

    icon_biggrin.gif Platski is a Polish thin crispy potato pancake. Polish pancakes are called Nalesniki. They are more like crepes and are served with a filling. There is a yeast version, could this be what you are looking for ? *^-^*

    wave.gif Hiya. Is this it, Lorac? icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Yield:4
    Ingredients:
    Amount Ingredient
    4 lrg potatoes grated
    1 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp salt or to taste
    1/2 tsp paprika
    1 tbl all-purpose flour
    ground black pepper to taste

    Instructions:
    In a medium bowl combine potatoes, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, paprika, flour and pepper. Mix very well. Coat a medium skillet with oil and heat on medium-high. Using a fork or spoon quickly spread a thin layer of potato mixture over the entire bottom of the pan. Make the pancake as thin as possible, without gaps or holes. Fry for 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip with a spatula and cook on the other side. Repeat with remaining potato mixture.

    NOTES : These are thin, crispy, fried potato pancakes. They are delicious!!

    Hi- Since there's no leavening other than eggs, it sounds like "Dutch Babies". There are a number of recipes for this good high pancake in the recipe file. Aside from the jam ontop it's also good with a squirt of lemon and confectioners sugar. Mmmmm

    Have another suggestion - Could it be an omelet souffle or Austrian pancake known as "Nockerl" This is cooked on top of the stove and is good for breakfast or supper dish.

    yes I read those recipes, and they sound pretty close to what I want.
    I think that I will try one first in the oven, and if I feel brave (with the weather getting hot) I will try it on the stove.

    No it is closer to the dutch baby recipe. My grandmother also made something like an apple fritter that she called platski, along with potato pancakes. I am now thinking that she used platski as a generic word for pancake.

    (She was a surrogate grandmother, my family is Polish, but she was actually Ukrainian I think, so Polish was not her first language. She was a close freind of my grandmother, who passed away before I was born.)

    But now I'm hungry. I miss my grandmother's nalesniki she always made these with a ground beef filling. Gee now I don't know if I grew up eating Polish food, or hodge podge of Eastern European food. I have taken Polish language lessons, and my teacher says I have a Ukrainian accent. Why not the rest of my mouth?

    That is very funny... I have never heard that expression before. What is funny, is that I understand what you mean; my mother had a plethora of quaint European expressions; I wish I could remember them all.. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    My mother was Hungarian and she cooked platski as a standard meal when we were growing up in the 50's and 60's.
    It was potato based (coarsely grated) and peppery to taste - not sure of the full recipe. When cooked it was the size of a thick hamburger pattie. I loved them and my wife will start cooking them for me now that I have found the recipe on this web site.

    The Polish platski is most like a French crepe. The most traditional recipe and simplest to remember is 1-1-1. Which is one egg, one cup of milk & one cup of flour. For a richer crepe use 2 eggs. Whisk all ingredients together, heat a buttered shallow fry pan and pour enough batter into pan to tilt and fill the bottom to a full circle. Turn it over when edges begin to curl away from pan. Fill with jam or nutella and roll up or fold in qtrs. Sift powder sugar over top. Enjoy!

    My mum was German and Dad was from Lithuania and thought Platskis were something my mum had made up. Her version was to make the potato cake mix and fill them with savoury mince before frying. We ate them with saurkraut. I make them for my family and friends now who can't get enough of them. So glad you can find the recipe on the internet, maybe they can make their own now

    The potato pancake/mince recipe you mention is called Zemaiciu blynai in Lithuania. Zemaitija is the western end of Lithuanian - where my Dad was from. Mother never made them, but one of my cousins made them for me. I have to remember to post a recipe here for them here.

    Having read the receipe my mum made hers with cooked peeled potatoes, put through a potato ricer mixed with egg, flour and little salt to make the dough filled them with mince and fried, she also made the ones from grated raw potato as a sweet dish with stewed apple/lemon jelly
