August 3, 2012 by Kenmore

Latkes (potato pancakes) are a traditional food at Chanukah. We enjoy making them as well as eating them!

cook time




4 large potatoes

1 small onion

1 apple peeled and cored

2 tablespoons flour

1 egg beaten


Step 1

Cut potatoes, apples, and onions into quarters and feed into your food processor tube. (I used my new Kenmore Elite food processor. What a pleasure - and cleanup was a cinch!) Let the grated potatoes sit for about a half hour in a metal bowl, then drain the excess liquid.

Step 2

Mix all ingredients together. Heat oil; put heaping mounds of potato mixture into the pan, and fry on both sides until crispy brown.

Step 3

Place pancakes on a platter lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Serve with applesauce or sour cream. Enjoy!
