12 latkes


  • 5 medium potatoes, peeled

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons grated onion

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 4 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup oil for frying, or as needed


  1. Place potatoes in salted water and let sit for about 15 minutes.

  2. Grate potatoes on a medium or fine setting. Press out liquid; this should produce about 4 cups grated potato.

  3. Place grated potato in a bowl and stir in flour, onion, salt, and pepper. Fold in eggs.

  4. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  5. Heat enough oil in a deep pan to reach 1/4 inch up the sides. Heat over medium-high heat until a drop of batter sizzles. Lower heat to medium.

  6. Working in batches, drop batter into the hot oil in desired size and flatten into pancakes; brown on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer to the prepared pans and keep warm in the preheated oven while you fry remaining batter.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
