Apple and Potato Pancake Recipe

potato pancake recipe

This potato pancake recipe is delicious enough for a toddler to eat and fabulous enough to serve to guests.

Makes 6-8 pancakes

You’ll Need

  • 1 large russet potato, scrubbed and grated (approx. 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium apple, scrubbed and grated (approx. 1 cup)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • Vegetable oil
  • Sour cream or plain yogurt, for serving
  • Honey, for serving

Prep and Cook

  • Place grated potatoes and apples on a clean tea towel and wring out to remove any excess liquid (you want the potato and apple shreds to be dry). Transfer to a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add egg, flour, salt, baking powder and onion powder to the mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Heat 1/4-inch oil in a skillet set over medium-high heat. Drop 1/4 cup dollops into the hot oil, flattening the mounds slightly.
  • Fry, turning once, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crispy brown all over. Drain pancakes on paper towel.
  • Serve warm with sour cream or yogurt and a drizzle of honey, if desired.
