German style potato pancakes
peeled, coarsely grated
Salt and pepper
Oil for frying
Place potatoes and onions in a strainer and press to extract moisture.
In a large bowl combine potatoes, onions, and egg. Gradually stir in the flour and baking powder, season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
Heat 1/4 inch oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Using approx. 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, add batter to hot oil, being careful not to crowd the pan. Fry until golden brown, turning once.
Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
May be frozen for later use and warmed in the microwave.
