These can be eaten savoury with tomato sauce, or sweet with sugar and cream.
My uncle Kayzie makes the best potato pancakes. The trick is to grate the potatoes on a very fine grating—it's a lot of work, but it's worth it, especially when someone else is doing the cooking.
. Serves 4. 5 steps
2kg potatoes   peel, finely grate Heat a large non-stick frying pan medium-hot. Spoon out portions of 1 large tablespoon. When top becomes firm and bottom is golden brown, turn over and cook until other side is golden brown.
3 eggs   mix well
2 tablespoons plain flour   mix well
salt and pepper
Big potatoes are easier to grate
