Lovely recipe, it's my lunch today. Production note: the reflections in the oven door were transfixing.

This is a wonderful recipe! With the Jewish holiday of Passover on April 18, how much matzah meal or cake meal should I substitute for the unbleached flour?

What could be used as a substitute for eggs in this recipe? Thanks very much!

Sheryl, Add enough matzah meal to get the potato egg mixture to hold together. Christina, I don't have a great substitute for eggs in this recipe. They definitely need something to bind them in order to make patties. Anyone else have an idea?

The potato pancakes sound terrific and I will definitely make them, but boy can I relate to your pray for your children comment, lol. p.s. to Matt; I watched 2 more times staring at the oven door... :-)

I have made a similar version of these pancakes and replaced the eggs with a product I buy here in Australia called 'No Egg', which is a powder that gets whipped with water until it foams and looks a bit like egg whites. Ironically, I have a feeling 'No Egg' is potato starch. But it works! My Polish grandfather used to make placki with no eggs, and they stayed together but often weren't as fluffy as the ones with egg. So if you can live with them being a bit denser, maybe try a placki or rosti recipe?

We make these with left-over mashed potatoes. Yummy!

One option for egg substitute is ground flax seed mixed with water.

Thanks Marsha. The flaxseed substitution can be okay in baked good, I would guess that it would not function in the same way for the potato pancakes and might cause an off flavor and texture.

I was out of eggs when I made these, so I substituted fresh ground golden flaxseeds and water for the eggs, and they turned out great. They binded just fine. These are the best potato pancakes I've ever made/eaten! I was wondering what gluten free flour could you recommend to replace the flour?

Hi Cynthia, Is it ok to store the'pancake batter' to fry later? or should I fry them all and re-heat later? Thank You, KG

KG I would make the patties and fry later.
