Sure, I can help you with a German potato pancakes recipe! One popular German dish that features potatoes is “Kartoffelpuffer” or potato pancakes. Here’s a simple recipe for you:


  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying



  1. Grate the peeled potatoes using a grater or a food processor. Place the grated potatoes in a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out any excess moisture.
  2. In a bowl, combine the grated potatoes, finely chopped onion, eggs, flour, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Heat a generous amount of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Spoon portions of the potato mixture into the hot oil, spreading them into flat, round pancakes. Fry until the edges are golden brown, and then flip to cook the other side. This usually takes about 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Once both sides are golden and the potatoes are cooked through, transfer the pancakes to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  6. Continue this process until all the potato mixture is used.
  7. Serve the German potato pancakes hot, either plain or with toppings like applesauce or sour cream.

These Kartoffelpuffer are a delicious and traditional German dish, often enjoyed as a side dish or a light meal. Enjoy your German potato pancakes!
