Pancakes appear in almost every culture and when they appear take on some of the flavor of the lands in which they originate. Some of my favorite pancakes are latkes. Latke is the Yiddish word for pancake. They are traditionally eaten by Ashenazik Jews on Chanukkah to remember the miracle of the oil (what better than fried foods?) Sephardic and Mizrakhi Jews eat a variety of foods including Sufganiot which are a type of Jelly donut. I love pancakes, latkes, and sufganiot.
Thanks to b-man for posting this to recipesecrets with the tofu change. To quote the man at his finest "known as Happy Pancakes or Vietnamese Crepes are large yellow pancakes -- traditionally stuffed with bean sprouts and shrimp -- that look like lacy-thin crispy omelets."
**You will need an Ebelskiver pan for this recipe.**
These light, fluffy pancakes make a delicious breakfast treat paired with lingonberry or raspberry jam. Be adventurous, sub out the blueberries and try chocolate chips, diced bananas, raspberries, etc.... My Fav? Banana/Walnut.
This is another one from my Bubby. Galicianers made this for Friday lunch, while preparing Shabbos, because it's easy and parve. It's like a lighter latke, so I like to make it on Chanuka. Goes well with sour cream on top or just a sprinkle of sugar or jam, and a salad on the side.
My mom got this great-looking recipe when she was going through a recipe craze as a girl like me! lol All the ingredients are basics that everyone has in the kitchen, so these could be made any time you're in the mood for something sweet and puffy.
I ate these growing up. I don't know if my Mom happened to be out of potatoes one day and just tried carrots or if she got them out of a book. She doesn't remember, but I seem to remember her just substituting the carrots because we were out of potatoes. They're much better when you keep the carrots and onion almost to equal amounts
This recipe combines the distinctive taste and wonderful crunch of celery root with the usual starchy Russet potatoes. I loved the flavor and the texture, they taste wonderful when topped with applesauce. This recipe is gluten-free if you use a gluten-free flour mix instead of matzo meal. These freeze well, so make extra!
Love how I got this recipe! I bought a cookbook at an estate sale and inside was a very yellowed newspaper clipping from the Chicago Daily News and this recipe was printed on it. I am guessing the yield but correct me if I am wrong if you make these before I do. These sound very different. * Watch the peanut oil for allergies!
Love how I got this recipe! I bought a cookbook at an estate sale and inside was a very yellowed newspaper clipping from the Chicago Daily News and this recipe was printed on it. This recipe calls for peanut oil (which I love) but if you are making this for company or a pot luck, make sure there are no peanut allergies! I guessed the yield since there was no mention here and since I haven't made them yet. Feel free to update the recipe if you discover it is different!
If you're allergic to potatoes (or just don't like them) here is a colorful and tasty rendition for Hanukkah time or anytime throughout the year. Finish with the traditional sour cream if you like. Serve hot as either a main dish or side tonight ... stuff one into a pita for a quick lunch tomorrow.
