These Danish treats are not like the traditional "latkes", but are made with rye flour and rolled out into cakes and cooked on a hot griddle. Serve them with melted butter and honey or brandy sauce.

Ingredients

1 1/4 lb
potatoes
1/2 tsp
salt
1 c
rye flour
1 1/4 c
all purpose flour
2
egg whites, beaten until frothy

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook the potatoes in their jackets, in a pot of boiling water, until just tender. Drain and cool slightly.
2
Peel potatoes, add salt and mash while warm.
3
Work the flours into the mashed potatoes, a little at a time with egg whites. Knead the dough well. (You may have to use more or less flour).
4
Divide dough into eight pieces and roll each piece on a lightly floured board into a thin round cake.
5
Cook on both sides on a greased griddle over medium-low heat until done. Watch them closely to keep them from burning.
