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.

Stove Top

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

Step-By-Step

1Cook the potatoes in their jackets, in a pot of boiling water, until just tender. Drain and cool slightly.

2Peel potatoes, add salt and mash while warm.

3Work 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).

4Divide dough into eight pieces and roll each piece on a lightly floured board into a thin round cake.

5Cook on both sides on a greased griddle over medium-low heat until done. Watch them closely to keep them from burning.

6Serve with toppings of your choice.
