Latke Recipe

Potato-Apple Latkes

A great Hanukkah dish, there is no need to serve applesauce with these latkes. Shredded apple sweetens the pancakes - serve with a dollop of sour cream!

2 large (4 cups) baking potatoes, peeled, shredded
1 large (1 cup) sweet apple, peeled, shredded
1 small (1/2 cup) onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Vegetable oil
Sour cream, if desired
Honey, if desired


Pat shredded potatoes and apple between paper towels to remove excess moisture.

Combine all ingredients except oil, sour cream and honey in bowl; mix well.

Heat 1/4-inch oil over medium-high heat in 10-inch skillet.

Drop 1/4 cup potato mixture into hot oil, flattening each mound slightly. Fry, turning once, 6-8 minutes or until crisply brown. Drain well on paper towels.

Serve warm with dollop of sour cream; drizzle with honey, if desired.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Made them for breakfast. My kids ate them as fast as I could get them off the grill. I'll have to make more than recipe called for to keep up. I substituted leeks for the onions, since I didn't have any onions in the house, and added a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.
I served the latkes with pork chops that were breaded and tender and yummy and put a dollop of sour cream & applesauce on top of the latkes. I could not get the apples I wanted Jonathan-tart but next time they will be in the stores and I shall make the latkes again.....loved them! Hubby & I agreed tho, no onion next time.
