Potato Pancakes

We had these for dinner tonight, and they were so yummy! The kids especially liked them, and ate 3 big pancakes each, with some homemade cinnamon applesauce that I cooked up earlier this afternoon.

Potato Pancakes

2 eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup vegetable oil

In a large bowl, beat together eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Mix in potatoes and onion.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop the potato mixture into the skillet. Press to flatten. Cook about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
