Dad's Potato Latkes

My dad makes these latkes once a year for Chanuka. Unlike the traditional latke, which is made with shredded potato and fried until crispy, these latkes are made with pureed potato and therefore have the consistency of a regular pancake. We like to serve them with homemade applesauce and sour cream.

1/4 C milk
1 egg
2 C raw, diced potatoes (about 2 medium potatoes, or 3/4 lb)
1 small onion, diced
2 Tbs flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Put all ingredients (in the order listed) into a blender. Cover and blend on high speed until all the potatoes go through the blades (do not overblend, or the potatoes will be liquified!).

Pour in small amounts onto a hot, greased griddle or frying pan. Fry until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Allow 15 minutes cooking time per batch.
