LaBelle's Potato Pancakes


550g of potatoes ~ peeled and chopped
1 and 1/2 cups of plain (all-purpose) flour
1 egg ~ beaten
1 cup of milk
Pinch of salt to taste
3 tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon frying oil (to fry the vegetables)

To serve

Golden syrup (any amount)
2 tins of sardine (drained)
chicken/beef/pork sausage - fried for about 2-3 minutes using the frying oil in a frying pan
Mixed vegetables (cabbage,  carrots, corn, onion) or any mixed vegetables of your choice


Place the peeled and chopped potatoes in a blender or food processor, blend until the potatoes are completely blended.

Empty the liquidized potatoes into a medium/large bowl, then add the flour, milk, beaten egg and 2 tablespoons of melted butter and mix together to get a dropping consistency. Add pinch of salt to taste.

***The milk and flour can be adjusted, depending on how thin or thick you like your pancakes***

Heat a little butter {from the 1 tablespoon remaining} on a frying or griddle pan. Scoop in about 2-3 1/4cup of the mixture into the pan ***if the consistency is right it would spread evenly over the base of the pan***.

Cook over a medium heat for about 3-5 minutes on each side. Repeat the process for the remaining mixture.

Serve rolled with the hot sausages, sardines and hot vegetable filling of your choice. Drizzle golden syrup and enjoy!!!


  1. Woooow!! I like x3!!! It's a must try. Potato flour! Did something similar with beans here ---> http://thatbellachic.blogspot.com/2013/05/cbb-beans-fiesta-la-carte.html

    1. Thank you. Have checked it out, really nice.

  2. I am a guy who loves to cook,so I will definitely try this. You didn't say if potato should be iriSh or sweet, or if it should be boiled first before it is blended into a paste. I would like to know.
