      I followed this recipe exactly and the resulting pancakes were wonderful. The directions were easy to follow and precise. Before serving I did blot the pancakes of paper towelling to absorb some of the cooking oil. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

      I halved the recipe for two of us, but they were SO delicious that I could certainly have eaten more than my share of these. Fantastic blend of flavours... thyme, lemon juice: these potato pancakes already contained the ingredients I would have been inclined to add had they not been in the list of ingredients. My only addition was 2 cloves of minced garlic, which I added to the grated ingredients in step one. And the apple sauce was brilliant with these. I'll certainly be making these again. Thank you for sharing another wonderful recipe!
