I'm hoping you can help me locate a recipe for the best potato pancakes I've ever made.  
This was back in the mid- to late-70s when I acquired a new Oster 10-speed blender that 
came with a cookbook.

The blender lasted us about 15 years but  I kept the little cookbook. However, a series 
of military moves later, it's gone.

I remember the recipe called for chopped raw potatoes put into the blender with water 
to cover and then I'd push the grate button and it did all the work.  I just had to 
drain and dry the potatoes between paper towels.  I believe chopped onions were also 
added to the blender but I've  forgotten the rest of the recipe but once they 
were fried, they were delicious.  I've tried making them with a box grater but seem 
to lose a lot of knuckle skin in the process.

Do you or your devoted followers happen to have that recipe (or something similar)?

Thank you, Uncle Phaedrus.


Hi Joanne,

I will post this as you suggest for readers who might have the actual Oster recipe book to comment, but the below recipe is supposed to be the booklet recipe.


Potato Pancakes     

2 eggs
1 sm. onion
1 tsp. salt
3 c. cubed raw potatoes
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Need Osterizer/Blender

Put eggs, onion, salt, flour, baking powder and 1/2 cup potato cubes into 
Osterizer/Blender container. Cover and process at "liquefy" until smooth. 
Add remaining potatoes, cover and process 2 cycles at grind. Pour onto a 
hot well greased griddle. Makes 12 pancakes

Phaedrus - the recipe you post in the reply is nearly word for word the recipe 
printed in my Oster Spin Cookery copyrighted 1977.

The Spin Cookery copyrighted 1964 has a slightly different recipe…I trust this 
cookbook would not come with the 10 speed. It may interest your readers and 
Joanne regardless.

Fritter Potato Pancakes         Yield 4 servings

1/4c        milk
2           eggs
1/2         small onion
1-1/2 tsp   salt
1/4c        flour
1/4 tsp     baking powder
1-1/2 c     cubed raw potato

Put all ingredients into the Osterizer container. Cover and blend until potatoes 
are grated- about 5 seconds. Do not overblend!

Pour about 1 Tbsp of the mixture from the corner of the container into a hot, 
well-greased griddle. Bake until brown. Turn only once. Drain on paper.

Cheers, Kirsten
