Ingredients

2 c
mashed potatoes
1 tsp
salt
4 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 large
egg, beaten
1 tsp
baking powder
vegetable oil for frying
1 c
flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
With a hand mixer, combine potatoes, salt, butter and egg.
2
Combine flour and baking powder., adding slowly to potato mixture until a soft but firm dough forms.
3
Turn out onto a working surface that has been dusted with flour. Gently turn the dough over on itself a few times. Then roll out or pat out until a 1/2 inch thickness.
4
Spoon additional flour onto saucer near the stove top.
5
Heat 1/8 inch of oil in a fry pan on moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking. Keep about a cupful of oil nearby because you will have to replace it as the pancakes fry.
6
Dust your hands generously with flour before handling the dough. Tear off a small pancake size piece of dough, gently dredge it through the flour and place in the hot pan. Fry until light brown.
7
Drain on a plate that has been covered with a paper towel or place in a warm oven until all dough has been fried.
8
Serve hot with melted butter or honey.
