Mhhh, today my Potato Pancake Recipe comes into your kitchen.
Grandma’s potato buffers are even available in a vegan version and that’s a reason to read on…
You can prepare your buffers with raw potatoes or with cooked ones.
By the way, the buffer of boiled potatoes would then be a Berner Roesti.
Stick with it now:
There’s a simple recipe for you … no matter whether you want to serve the buffers with oat flakes and egg, without oat flakes and egg, with or without onion, as a side dish or as a classic with apple sauce.
I will answer your cooking question at the end of the page using the comment function.
Until then I wish you a lot of fun reading and good luck!

Potato pancake Ingredients with sugar, cinnamon and apple compote
Wash the raw, mainly waxy potatoes with skin.
Peel and grate the potatoes.
If you peel the potatoes for a long time before preparation, store them in cold water so that the peeled potatoes do not turn brown.
Grate the prepared, peeled potatoes evenly.
Now you can add the optional ingredients:
Finely grated onions, beaten eggs, chickpea flour or oatmeal.
Season the potato mixture with salt, pepper and nutmeg and season to taste.
Finish the potato mixture
Mix the potato mixture.
The water from the grated potatoes settles by itself.
You don’t need to pass the potato mixture or squeeze out the liquid with a cloth. Preheat the oven to 180°C hot air.
Next, heat a coated pan on the stove and add a little oil to the pan.
Potato pancake shape
For round, beautifully shaped buffers, use a stainless steel ring to insert the mass.
Turn the buffers after a firm crust has formed and fry them crispy on both sides.
Cook the buffers for 10-15 minutes in the oven on baking paper until done, then arrange as desired.
The buffer tastes great as a side dish with fish and meat, complements a starter with smoked salmon, it is a food evergreen served with sugar, cinnamon, stewed apple or apple sauce.
Enjoy your meal!

3. Tips for Pan Potato Cakes prepare
In a nutshell, I have summarized the most important things for the preparation below…
- Preferably a predominantly waxy potato variety.
- All other varieties work with my recipe too.
- The predominantly waxy variety produces particularly fine buffers.
- You can prepare the buffers with or without oat flakes and egg.
- As an alternative to oat flakes you can use rice flour, chickpea flour or a little cornflour.
- The egg-free buffer is vegan and therefore ideal for the guest kitchen.
- Buffers prepared with oat flakes, chickpea flour or rice flour are gluten-free!
The potato pancakes taste wonderful as a side dish or as a main course potato pancake with apple sauce or apple compote.
