Well, my dad - who cannot eat gluten - gave these potato cakes the thumbs up and asked me if I would make him some more. I told him I would post the recipe and he can make them himself, one batch is more than generous :) They are rather good. I am a potato cake fiend, but the potato cakes that are commercially bought can be loaded with additives and sometimes contain animal products. And it's rare to find gluten free ones.
This recipe doesn't need to be made gluten free though. I haven't yet tried this recipe with standard flour, and even those these are nice, I do think the standard flour ones will be a little better. So, if you don't have any reason to opt for gluten free, go ahead and use plain flour to make these potato cakes, if you wish. Then let me know what you think.
