(Swedish Potato Pancakes)

​This recipes was shared by a Swedish WWOOFer couple as a part of Kelsey's fieldwork in Central Otago. The recipe was selected by the WWOOFers because they had shared it with previous WWOOF Hosts, and felt that their Hosts had liked it because of their perception that Kiwis eat a lot of potatoes, and because it is a regionally specific dish from Östergötland County in Sweden where the couple normally resides.


200 mL flour
1 tsp salt
400 mL milk
1 egg
800g potato (raw, grated)

Oil for frying

     Bacon rashers (whole, fried)
     Lingonberry Sauce


  1. Grate potatoes.

  2. Beat flour, salt, and half the milk. Whisk together egg and second half of milk. Incorporate egg and milk mixture into flour mixture to make the batter.

  3. Stir grated potato into the batter.

  4. Heat frying pan and oil. Pour approximately 50 mL of potato batter into frying pan to form a thin pancake. Fry until it starts to bubble, then flip over (approx. 1 – 2 minutes per side). Repeat with remainder of batter.

  5. Serve hot as a side to Swedish meatballs or as a main with a side of bacon rashers.

  6. Top with lingonberry sauce.
