My Grandmother's Traditional Chanukah Potato Latkes

Makes 3 to 4 dozen, depending on size.


4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
2 eggs
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Clabber Girl Baking Powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
Vegetable Oil For Frying


In a food processor, dice up the onions and potatoes briefly. Add in eggs and process a bit more, and then remaining ingredients and process to make a batter, about 1-2 minutes. It should be a thick 'mush' of a batter.
Heat up some oil in a large skillet, about 1/2 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 and pressing a bit to flatten pancakes.
Drain on paper towels.
Make small ones (they are crisper)

Serves with sour cream and applesauce on the side.
