I followed the directions exactly and the pancakes turned out really good. I have been to Germany four times , and can tell you that these are German pancakes.Food in Germany is regional as it is here.Some grate the potatoes, some puree the spuds.My Dad really enjoyed them.Went together well with scrambled eggs and baked beans.Measure and weigh all ingredients for best results.
