Potato Pancakes - Kartoffelpletter

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Outta Here

These Danish treats are not like the traditional "latkes", but are made with rye flour and rolled out into cakes and cooked on a hot griddle. Serve them with melted butter and honey or Danish Brandy Sauce-Cognacsauce

These were unlike anything I have tried before, they were like a latke and tortilla combined. I didn't want to throw out the egg yolks so I had scrambled eggs and ketchup on top, rather than a sweet syrup. Very, very filling! For ZWT9 family picks :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 lbs potatoes
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1 14 cups white flour
  • 2 egg whites, beaten until just frothy


  1. Cook the potatoes in their jackets, in a pot of boiling water, until just tender. Drain and cool slightly.
  2. Peel potatoes, add salt and mash while warm.
  3. Work the flours into the mashed potatoes, a little at a time with egg whites. Knead the dough well. (You may have to use more or less flour).
  4. Divide dough into eight pieces and roll each piece on a lightly floured board into a thin round cake.
  5. Cook on both sides on a greased griddle over medium-low heat until done. Watch them closely to keep them from burning.
  6. Serve with toppings of your choice.
