Recipe: Mama Wolf's Latkes

Happy Chanukah! A few months ago, one of my friends was generous to provide me with the perfect latke recipe (which I used for a German potluck), and so I will pass on the deliciousness as my Chanukah present to you all.

MAMA WOLF'S LATKES [slightly adapted by Sarah] (c) Architectural Appetite 2008
3 cups grated baking potatoes, peeled (about 3 medium-small potatoes)
1 egg
2 tablespoons flour
1 small onion
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Grate potatoes and onions together. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together. Heat up the oil, and make sure it's hot but not so hot that it flies around all over the place. Spoon some latke batter into the oil and then wait until the center is stiff before flipping. Fry until brown and then drain on a paper towel.

These are delicious. Serve with apple sauce or sour cream or whatever weird condiment you were brought up with.

Yay latkes! I made regular ones and sweet potatoes ones (with vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves) last night... and served them with homemade applesauce (which is really easy, since you just core and chop apples, put them in boiling water with some cinnamon, and then wait).


Miss you... e-mail on its way!
