potato pancakes

black dress 002

SOFT and yummy!! A favorite from my childhood...

Potato Pancakes
1 C flour

2 tsp baking powder 
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C mashed potatoes (leftovers are great for this, or you can whip up some potato flakes)
1 1/4 cup skim or 1% milk
3 large egg whites
2 tsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
butter flavor cooking spray

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine milk, egg white and mashed potatoes in a bowl and mix until smooth. Combine wet ingredients with the dry and mix well with a spoon until there are no more dry spots. Don't over-mix.

Heat a large skillet on medium heat. Spray oil to lightly coat and pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter. When the pancake starts to bubble and the edges begin to set, flip the pancakes. Repeat with the remainder of the batter.

Serves 6 (2 pancakes each)  3 pt+
