Ukrainian Potato Pancakes – Deruny, Platsky, Tertyuhy (Recipe)


The pancakes are very filling, satisfying, and keep you full for quite a while. Since it’s a common Slavic culture recipe, it’s made similarly by many people.

Here is a classic Ukrainian potato pancake recipe that my mom and grandmother make, that I absolutely adore. Serve these with a dollop of sour cream or apple sauce .
