Potato Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Serve with applesauce and sour cream on the side.

4 potatoes (Russets suggested)
1 small onion
1/4 cup flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
vegetable oil for the pan (grapeseed, etc.)

applesauce and sour cream, for serving, if desired

Scrub the potatoes, peel if desired. Using a box grater, or food processor, shred the potatoes and onion. Place in batter bowl and add the flour, egg, baking powder, and salt. Heat a heavy bottomed skillet and add oil to a depth of about 1/4 inch. Using a large tablespoon or a 1/8 cup measuring cup, drop mounds of the mixture into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown and crispy on one side. Flip over, flatten, and finish cooking. Repeat until all are cooked, placing finished ones on a warm platter. Serve with applesauce and sour cream.
