Recipe by IngridH

Another childhood favorite. Mom would serve these for dinner along with lingonberry preserves. Prep time includes 2 hours to rest the batter.

Very nice. I chose these as healthier than mashed potatoes, and yet they provided a wonderful potato presence next to my Recipe#126865. First I tried cooking with ghee in my All-Clad-style chef's pan; the batter stuck stubbornly to the pan. So I switched to a non-stick pan with a little canola oil, which worked very well. I chose this recipe partly because my new mixer has a food processing attachment and has a shredding plate just for potatoes for potato pancakes (how could I refuse!). Next time I will also get some ligonberry jam to top them. Made for The Wild Bunch of ZWT8 for its visit to Great Britain.
