German Potato Pancakes


Potato pancakes are associated with cuisines of many European countries but either they were not so popular in Bosnia or my mom didn't care to make them. Hence, I had my first Kartofellpuffer (a.k.a. Reibekuchen) when I moved to Germany. I was hooked. Potato pancakes or if you will latkes, placki, and boxty are an ideal breakfast, main and side dish traditionally popular among Jewish, Polish, and Irish population.
