  1. Grate potatoes, place in a colander and rinse under cold water to remove starch. Drain well.
  2. Grate onion, place in a colander and press with the back of a wooden spoon to remove excess moisture.
  3. Combine potatoes and onion in a large bowl.
  4. Beat eggs into mixture. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
  5. Heat 1/8 inch oil in a large skillet. Drop about 2 tablespoonful of batter into the oil and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon.
  6. The flatter the pancake the crisper it will be. Brown well on both sides.
  7. Drain on paper towel. Keep cooked pancakes warm in a 100 degree oven.

I also needed more flour than called for. Delicious recipe!

Thank you for this delicious recipe, a little hardwork than I'm used to but perfect to get me used to cooking again! My 6 year old son and myself, said they are just like the kind I get in PA when visiting my family where I grew up! Thanks.

Wonderful! These pancakes tasted exactly like the ones I would order every Saturday at my favorite restaurant in Mannheim, Germany. I used a bit less onion and slightly more flour. Very good...even my boyfriend liked them (and I was competing with his mother's latkes!).
