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!

Very nice pancakes! I ate mine with ketchup, I didn't have applesauce. This made a nice breakfast! Thanks Lainey!

Wonderful! Seasonings and timing are perfect. I did cheat on this-I used boughten refrigerated hash browns. I did not realize that I was out of applesauce so dolloped on some low fat yogurt, but it would be best with applesauce. Thank you for sharing another keeper, Lainey6605.

I love the sour tartness of these. I haven't made potato pancakes before so these were a treat. I would highly recommend eating with the applesauce. I thought that it would be a weird combination but I really enjoyed it. My 3 yr old son who believes everything must have ketchup on it liked it better with the applesauce too. I will make this again. Thank you for sharing! Made for ZWT 4

These were very good German potato pancakes! They have a very distinct sour German flavors to it which I love. I was hesitant to try it with the applesauce, but my German friend insisted that they eat it with an apple cream and it tastes best with it. I ended up loving the applesauce with it! Made for ZWT 4.

Just beautiful, what a great potato pancake. The lemon juice and thyme really brings out a freshness in these. I didn't have any apple sauce today they were great without. I add one with sour cream and one with a little sprinkle of salt. Great recipe thank you.
