These were really good!! and easy ... thanks to a food processor....

4 russet potatoes (important to use russet or yukon gold)
2 medium onions
2 Tablespoons of flour (or matzo meal)
1 teaspoon of salt
couple shakes of pepper
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs-beaten
vegetable oil

With the "grating" blade on put your onions thru first...the onion juice will keep the potatoes from turning dark....than the peeled in strainer...take half the mixture and put back into the processor but this time with the "chopping" blade and pulse a few times...put this into the strainer with the rest of the all this to release all those juices...put the "dry" mixture into a large bowl...add the remaining ingredients and the hot veg.oil (i keep it at medium so not to burn pancakes) place 1/4 cup of "batter" .. with the back of the measuring cup just gently press each pancake to make nice rounds...cook on both sides until nice and brown/crispy....serve with applesauce (i make my own) and / or sour cream.
