Traditional Potato Pancakes or Latkes

This is the easy and classic recipe most families serve. They are great any time – not just for Chanukah. Mini ones are best.

4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 small onion, peeled and finely grated
2 eggs
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Vegetable Oil For Frying

In a food processor, dice up the onions and potatoes briefly until medium fine . Add in eggs and process a bit more, and then remaining ingredients and process to make a batter, about 1-2 minutes.

Heat up some oil in a large skillet, about ½ inch up the sides. When the oil is hot, drop dollops of the batter in the hot oil. Brown well on each side, turning once. Drain on paper towels. (Make small ones as they are crisper)

Serves with sour cream and applesauce on the side.

Makes 3 to 4 dozen, depending on size.
