I'm hoping you can help me locate a recipe for the best potato pancakes I've ever made.
This was back in the mid- to late-70s when I acquired a new Oster 10-speed blender that
came with a cookbook.
The blender lasted us about 15 years but I kept the little cookbook. However, a series
of military moves later, it's gone.
I remember the recipe called for chopped raw potatoes put into the blender with water
to cover and then I'd push the grate button and it did all the work. I just had to
drain and dry the potatoes between paper towels. I believe chopped onions were also
added to the blender but I've forgotten the rest of the recipe but once they
were fried, they were delicious. I've tried making them with a box grater but seem
to lose a lot of knuckle skin in the process.
Do you or your devoted followers happen to have that recipe (or something similar)?
Thank you, Uncle Phaedrus.
I will post this as you suggest for readers who might have the actual Oster recipe book to comment,
but the below recipe is supposed to be the booklet recipe.
1 sm. onion
1 tsp. salt
3 c. cubed raw potatoes
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Put eggs, onion, salt, flour, baking powder and 1/2 cup potato cubes into
Osterizer/Blender container. Cover and process at "liquefy" until smooth.
Add remaining potatoes, cover and process 2 cycles at grind. Pour onto a
hot well greased griddle. Makes 12 pancakes
