Recipe by GalicioBocharit
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.

I thought these were very good. I used three largish potatoes, which resulted in 9 good-sized pancakes. I am not sure what the yeast added. Mine was nice and bubbly and I let it all stand 30 minutes, but I just did not see any real effect. Perhaps it was just a bit too cool in the kitchen. Still, it all worked out very nicely. I did reduce the salt quite a bit I used probably 1 1/2 tsp and that was plenty.
Directions See How It's Made
- finely grate the potatoes& sprinkle salt over them.
- sprinkle the flour over potatoes to absorb the liquids.
- Once liquids are absorbed, add 2 tablespoons of oil.
- in a small bowl, put yeast, 2 tablespoons warm water, and 2 tablespoons of salt to create a yeasty mixture.
- mix everything together along with eggs.
- let rise for 1/2 hour.
- fry in shallow oil--let the mixture fill the pan, to make big fluffy pancakes.
