(2) eggs
2 tbsp of all-purpose flour
¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
(6) medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
½ cup finely chopped onion
¼ cup of vegetable oil


Beat the eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Then, mix in potatoes and onion.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the potato mixture in batches into the skillet, and press to flatten. Cook each side until brown and crisp for 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.


German potato pancakes can be eaten sweet or savory. These are most often eaten with apple sauce, other fruit compotes, or powdered sugar, but are often eaten as part of a meal with a yogurt-herb sauce or meat.

Use a grater or food processor to grate the potatoes with finesse. You‘re not looking for thick strands.
