  1. Grate potatoes and onion. Transfer to colander and squeeze mixture to press out as much liquid as possible.
  2. In a large bowl, mix egg, salt, pepper, flour and baking powder. Add potato and onions, and mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a deep, heavy skillet.
  4. Drop about 2 tablespoons of potato mixture into the pan for each pancake. Flatten with back of spoon so each pancake is about 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter.
  5. Fry over medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crisp. Turn carefully with 2 spatulas so oil does not splatter.
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Before frying each new batch, stir potato mixture. If all the oil is absorbed, add a little more to the pan.
  8. Serve hot with applesauce, or sour cream, or sugar.
