Potato Pancakes

Happy Chanukkah! Every year for Chanukkah I make my Bubby's chicky and her latkes. I'll never give up her chicky recipe, but since this is the season for giving, I'll share the latke recipe. It's very easy (especially if you have a food processor to grate the potatoes and onions in a matter of seconds) and tastes so much better than the boxed versions.

3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lbs potatoes peeled and grated
1 small sweet onion grated
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil

In a bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine the potatoes and onions. Squeeze out excess moisture from the potato mixture.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in the potato mixture and the flour mixture, mixing until throughly combined.
In a non stick skillet, drop potato mixture by 1/4 cup fulls into the oil.
Cook, turning only once, 4 minutes each side until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels and serve with applesauce.
