Potato Griddle-Cakes


  • 12 large potatoes
  • 3 heaping tablespoonfuls of flour
  • 1 teaspoonful of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoonful salt
  • 1 or 2 eggs
  • 2 teacupfuls of boiling milk


The potatoes are peeled, washed and grated into a little cold water (which keeps them white), then strain off water and pour on boiling milk, stir in eggs, salt and flour, mixed with the baking powder; if agreeable, flavor with a little fine chopped onion; bake like any other pancakes, allowing a little more lard or butter. Serve with stewed or preserved fruit, especially with huckleberries.
