These German potato pancakes are a nice change from regular pancakes. They make a great dinner meal when served with Bratwurst sausage. I spread mine with cranberry sauce and top with maple syrup.
Several Eastern European countries have their own variation of potato pancakes, including Germany.
This simple recipe for German potato pancakes, called kartoffelpuffer (kar‧tof‧fel‧puf‧fer), is easy enough to make at home, and the golden, crispy fried pancakes are a real treat, perfect served with homemade applesauce (which cuts the oiliness) or sour cream.
Eating freshly made potato pancakes with applesauce at local outdoor weekly markets, Christmas markets, or during Karneval or Fasching are some of the ways Germans indulge in this favorite traditional snack.
These potato pancakes are also enjoyed as a side dish with meats such as roasted chicken or pork. Serve them as part of a delicious dinner or make smaller pancakes and serve as an appetizer; kartoffelpuffer are also wonderful at brunch when topped with a poached egg.
