Ingredients

4 each potatoes
peeled
1 small onions
2 large eggs
cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch lemon pepper
or pepper oil for frying
*

Directions

Grate potatoes either using the largest holes on a four-sided hand grater, or the grater attachment on a food processor.

Place potatoes in a colander and rinse under cold water to remove the starch.

Be sure to allow potatoes to drain well.

Grate onion, removing any excess moisture by placing in colander and pressing with the back of a wooden spoon.

Combine potato and onion.

Beat eggs into mixture; stir in flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.

If using a food processor, combine ingredients using plastic knife attachment so potatoes remain in grated pieces.

Heat ⅛ inch of oil in a large skillet.

For each pancake, drop about 2 tablespoons of batter into the oil and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon; the flatter the pancake, the crisper it will be.

Brown well on both sides. Drain well on paper towels.

Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a 100 degrees F oven.

Serve with Pink Cinnamon Applesauce and/or sour cream.

Pancakes may be made ahead of time and refrigerated between layers of waxed paper when cooled.

To reheat, place in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake uncovered at 450℉ (230℃) for 5 minutes, or until crisp and hot.

This is the best recipe. The key is to drain and dry the potatoes. Perfact

This is a great recipe. I have seriously screwed up latkes in the past, but this recipe made it easy and successful. We used much more than 1/8 inch of oil (the latkes were practically bathed in oil) and it turned out fantastically
