Kittencal's Onion Patties/Latkes

READY IN: 20mins




  • Chop the onions finely (I chop them about 1/4-inch) then place into a bowl.
  • In another large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, seasoning salt, cayenne, garlic powder (if using) and a small amount of black pepper; mix to combine well.
  • Add in the milk and whisk until thoroughly combined (the batter will be thick!).
  • Add in the chopped onions and green onions and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
  • In a large non-stick frypan, heat a small amount of oil to medium-hot, adding in more oil as needed as the patties will absorb too much oil if you add in a large amount of oil at one time.
  • Drop the batter from a tablespoon (no more than about a tablespoon!) into about 1/2-inch of hot oil (I slide the batter off using off another spoon).
  • Flatten slightly with the spoon or spatula.
  • Sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Fry until crispy and brown on both sides.
  • **NOTE** these tend to hold a bit of oil so drain well on paper towels.
