CHEZ SIMONE. BLUE. Latkes - pancakes, apple sauce... Enjoy!

Potato Latkes


Combine: 2 pounds of grated potatoes,

1 grated onion,

2 eggs,

1/4 cup of all-purpose flour (or matzo meal,)

½ tsp baking powder, and salt and pepper to taste.

Shape the mixture into pancakes, and fry them in a heavy-bottomed skillet until they are golden.

Serve with applesauce and/or sour cream.


Cheese Latkes

1 cup cottage cheese or ricotta cheese

¾ cup flour

3 large eggs, separated

1/2 tsp salt

½ tsp baking powder

Oil for frying

Combine cheese, flour, egg yolk, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix until the mixture forms a thick batter. Beat egg whites until stiff and add to cheese mixture.

Heat skillet over medium heat (not too hot.) Put about 2-3 Tbsp of oil in the skillet.

Pour 1-2 tablespoon of batter onto the hot skillet to make small pancakes/latkes.

Fry the latkes for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn golden brown.

Sprinkle with sugar.

Serve immediately. (These latkes can be served with preserves or sour cream.)
