Grandma's Potato Puffs

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mysterygirl

This is a very old family recipe. These are light - kind of taste like a cross between a potato pancake and a doughnut. Could also be served with powdered sugar instead of the syrup if you wanted. Just plain, old-fashioned German comfort food.

I made as directed with no changes. Excellent! I actually served this as a breakfast side, we all really enjoyed the sweetness to the potatoes. Thanks for sharing!
