Potato Apple Pancakes

By combining an apple and a potato gives this pancake recipe a different twist from the usual. A tasty side for any main dish. Extra delicious when served with a dollop of sour cream or applesauce.
  • 1 large potato
  • 1 large apple, I used Gala 
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil.
  1. Grate potato and apple, squeeze dry in a clean tea towel and place in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Stir in flour and seasonings.
  3. Add oil to a non stick large skillet and drop spoonfuls of mixture into skillet.
  4. Spread out the mixture to flatten the cakes.
  5. On medium heat fry pancakes 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer to serving dish. Serve hot.
  6. Yield: 6 pancakes


  1. Aww - what a clever idea to add apples to the potato pancakes - love it!

  2. I would be tempted to try these for brunch.
