What’s the next best thing to the made from scratch potato pancakes? The potato pancakes from the mix! Potato pancakes (a.k.a latkes) from the boxed potato pancake mix are also really tasty. Best of all, the potato pancake mix makes is so easy to make those latkes!
The potato pancakes mix saves you lots of steps – you don’t have to peel the potatoes, you don’t have to shred them in the food processor and you don’t have to squeeze out the potato liquid. All you need to do to make these convenient potato pancakes from the mix is to add eggs and water to the mix, then fry the latkes in a frying pan.
My favorite potato pancakes mix is Manischewitz brand – the mix is called Manischewitz Homestyle Potato Latke Mix. It makes really tasty potato pancakes – these yummy golden brown latkes that are pictured on top of this page were made by using this mix. These latkes are so tasty!
