So, the January came. Happened only few days ago, but I already get the feeling it will pass by pretty fast. Luckily for us it started as painlessly as it gets. Getting back to reality after the break, on the other hand, is something different. But coffee can be a help here.
But whether you’re not ready to let go of the festive spirit or you’re already moved on, I want to present you these little potatoe pancakes. They are quite a thing here in Germany and probably the whole eastern Europe. They can be served with an apple mousse, sugar or with a sauerkraut. My variation however gives this old recipe a new light. Not only because I used sweet potatoes unlike the original recipe based on the normal ones.
Makes about 12 small pancakes. Takes ca 20min.
3-4 sweet potatoes
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
200g cream cheese
handful of rucola
Peel the potatoes and grate on a grater with small mesh. Whisk the eggs and add to the potatoes. Mix well and add the flour and lemon juice.
Heat a little bit of oil in a pan and put a spoonful of the potatoe mix. Form a pancake form using a fork and fry about 1min from each side.
Garnish ready pancakes with a spoonful of cream cheese and stripes of salmon or rucola or both. Sprinkle with chive and serve.
