Potato Pancakes


These are an easy blender version of potato pancakes that we enjoyed recently.

  • 3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes or 3 cups peeled chopped raw potatoes
  • 1/2 onion coarsely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 green onions (scallions) chopped

  1. Put all ingredients but the green onions into blender container. 
  2. Cover and blend, stopping to make sure all ingredients are getting chopped. 
  3. Push down onions or potatoes with a spatula if necessary. 
  4. Continue till blended well. Some coarseness of the potatoes and onions is O.K.
  5. Stir in green onions.
  6. Pour batter onto hot greased griddle. Brown then flip once to brown the other side.
  7. Serve with sour cream and applesauce.
We enjoy our potato pancakes with maple syrup or fruit syrup, also.

  2. Do you thaw the frozen potatoes and then measure or measure frozen? Thanks

    1. You can thaw the potatoes but I was in a hurry and I measured them frozen. Either way they'll work out fine.

  3. These look delicious and interesting prep in a blender. I'll have to give this a try - maybe next Tuesday for Shrove Tuesday!. We always have warmed applesauce with our potato pancakes as well as a good splash of Maple Syrup!

  4. Yes, these do look yummy! I'm going for groceries this morning.....should they be the already shredded kind, or cubed?

    1. I used the shredded frozen. I'm just guessing that the frozen cubed would work, too.

    2. If you use the frozen cubed variety you might need to thaw them so your blender doesn't have to work to hard to blend them.

  6. Great short cut over shredding spuds in a salad shooter!
    Another flavor: use fresh rosemary instead of the green onion.
    Or any herb for that matter.

  7. These look delicious .. I'll have to make them soon.
    Potato pancakes always bring up tearful emotions for me. I was a young bride and just learning to cook and having a long day at home waiting for my husband to come home, I poured over cookbooks trying new recipes. My husband was old school - addicted to his mother's cooking.
    One day I tried potato pancakes ... and need I say more? They didn't go over very well and I ended up in tears. smile... We have enjoyed them since.

  9. I tried these last night and they were delicious! However, I just didn't get the nice brown crust you did. What kind of grease do you use in the skillet? Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Seabear, I used vegetable oil. If you like the golden brown crust you could try a little butter with the oil. :)

    2. Thanks for responding! I use veg oil, also - perhaps it simply wasn't hot enough. Hubby was delighted to have potato pancakes with dinner, in any case, so thanks for posting this recipe. I'll use it often, I am sure.

  11. I just made these for Shrove Tuesday and used chopped raw potatoes. They were the best potato pancakes ever and so easy to make! I will never grate potatoes for pancakes again. I should have made a double recipe to satisfy my family.
