1 large sweet potato (about 1 pound), peeled*
1 very small onion
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 to 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour or matzoh meal
About 2 cups vegetable oil, for frying
Confectioners' sugar, applesauce, and/or sour cream, for serving
*FreshDirect Note: Our sweet potatoes sometimes run small, so we've included enough to equal 1 lb.
||Shred the sweet potato and onion on the julienne disk of a food processor or on the coarse side of a hand grater.|
||Toss together the potato, onion, egg, and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
Stir in enough of the four to hold the mixture together.|
||Just before serving, pour the oil to a depth of at least 1 inch in a frying pan or electric skillet and heat to 350°F.
Using 2 spoons, form the sweet potato mixture into 3-inch pancakes. Lower these into the fat. Fry the latkes, 4 at a time,
turning with a slotted spoon or wire skimmer, until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes total.|
||Using a skimmer or slotted spoon, transfer the latkes to paper towels to drain.
Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve with applesauce and/or sour cream.|
