Potato Pancakes

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


3 medium potatoes, cleaned and peeled
1 tablespoon onion
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Vegetable oil


Cut potatoes into quarters; place in a medium saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 10 minutes. Drain and cool.

Shred potatoes, and add remaining ingredients except oil, mixing well. Drop potato mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls into 1/8 inch hot oil (375°); press into 2 1/2-inch rounds using the back of a fork. Fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain well.
