Supposedly this came from an issue of TV Guide. Not to be eaten with "Lamb Chop". ;-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 deg F.
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients into a batter.
  3. Coat two baking sheets with oil spray.
  4. Drop 1/4-cup cupfuls of batter onto the prepared sheets; press the pancakes down with the back of your dampened hand.
  5. Bake 15 minutes; then turn and bake 10 minutes longer, or until latkes are browned all over (but not blackened at edges).
  6. Serve with applesauce or sour cream.

Most other latke recipes tell you to squeeze or drain excess liquid from the potatoes. I squeezed them. The latkes (even after spraying) were hard to flip. They were stuck to the pan. They were a bit dry - maybe too much wheat germ. Maybe 2 whole eggs would help? And the onion flavor seemed strong (it had a raw onion taste.) I think I might try it with less onions and wheat germ (maybe half) and add some garlic or other flavor (personal pref.) I doubled the recipe and made 17 latkes.
