How to Make Lacy Potato Pancakes (Latkes)


  1. Grate potatoes either using the largest holes on a four-sided hand grater, or the grater attachment on a food processor.
  2. Place potatoes in a colander and rinse under cold water to remove the starch and be sure to allow potatoes to drain well.
  3. Grate onion, removing any excess moisture by placing in colander and pressing with the back of a wooden spoon.
  4. Combine potato and onion.
  5. Beat eggs into mixture; stir in flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
  6. If using a food processor, combine ingredients using plastic knife attachment so potatoes remain in grated pieces.
  7. Heat 1/8\" of oil in a large skillet.
  8. 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.
  9. Brown well on both sides.
  10. Drain well on paper towels.
  11. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a 100 degree oven.
  12. Serve with pink cinnamon applesauce (see recipe) and/or sour cream.
  13. Makes about 2 dozen regular size or 5 dozen miniatures.
  14. Pancakes may be made ahead of time and refrigerated between layers of waxed paper when cooled.
  15. To reheat, place in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  16. Bake uncovered at 450 for 5 minutes, or until crisp and hot.
