German Style Potato Pancakes

2 large potatoes

3 C. water

1 t. lemon juice

1 potato, boiled and mashed

1 large egg, beaten

2 T. milk

1/2 t. salt

vegetable oil as needed

Grate raw potatoes into water to which lemon juice has been added. Place potatoes in a strainer or cheese cloth and drain off liquid. Drain well. Beat raw and cooked potatoes with egg, milk, and salt to form a batter.

Using 3 tablespoons oil for each batch, drop batter for 3 or 4 pancakes at a time in hot oil in a large frying pan. When firm on the bottom side, loosen edges and turn. Brown on other side. Remove, drain on paper towel, and keep warm.

Continue until all batter is used. Serve immediately with powdered sugar and applesauce.

Yield: 4 servings
