Bake with Beka: Making Latkes

Bake with Beka: Making Latkes from Rebekah Mui on Vimeo.

Here's a super-simple method of making delicious potato pancakes! 


My simple recipe found in the video is as follows:

You'll need: 
3 large potatoes
1 large onion
3 eggs
1/2 cup flour (I used wholewheat)

1) Peel the Onion
2) Scrub, Peel (Optional), and remove blemishes from the potatoes
3) Fit your food processor with the largest grater and grate potatoes and onion
4) Switch the grater to the dough blade and measure in flour. Add in seasoning to taste (salt and pepper)
amd process the mixture until well mixed. Finally Break in eggs one by one. 
5) Empty the latke batter into a bowl
6) Heat some olive oil in a nonstick pan, then ladle in heaped scoops of the batter, and fry over low heat until very golden brown. 

Serve latkes warm. Latkes are a simple and delicious accompaniment to steaks, sausages, and other European-style meat dishes. Latkes are traditionally made during Channukah. I ate these latkes in a sandwhich with challah and egg omelettes!

Mount Olive Butter Cake

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, 
which is before Jerusalem on the east, 
and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 
(Zechariah 14:4 KJV)
