S&P was too modest to post this, so I will! (He gave me permission)

Salt and Pepper's Recipe for Potato Pancakes:

2-2/12 lbs potatoes , peeled and shredded on a box grader into ice cold water. leave in the water so they don't oxidize. Leave for 30mins or more.
In a bowl, add 2 whole eggs + 1 egg white,mix in 3/4 cup of flour, 1/4 tsp salt,1/4 tsp pepper,1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Mix with a wire whisk until smooth an keep cool in the fridge.
Next, drain potatoes well. With a clean dish towel or cheese cloth ring out as much water as you can to dry the potatoes, place into a bowl and add wet ingredients and 1/2 large onion, grated, and mix well.
with about 1/4 inch of oil in a heated pan,(I use cast iron) Brown the pancakes on both sides. I use English Muffen Rings to make them uniformly round. You can use egg rings but the english muffin rings have higher si des and just make a thicker potato pancake. Of corse you don't need the rings at all. Enjoy, Joey

those are some delicious-looking potato pancakes, s&p. i'd love to have me a panfull of 'em right now! i was going to say that the ragged-edged pancakes are fine with me, but those rings do make some pretty shaped cakes. :)

i'm wondering, what is the difference between potato pancakes and latkes. is it that the latkes have onions in them?

Love potato pancakes. I usually use leftover boiled potatoes, grate them, add minced garlic, egg, some flour, chopped sauteed onion, minced parsley, S&P. Make them into patties and fry in bacon grease....love them with German-style pork roast.

I love them served with sour cream. Now I've got to plan to make some.

i woke up this morning with an overwhelming taste for potato pancakes, but had to settle for soft boiled eggs. they were good, the eggs. they always are. but i feel the need for potato pancakes in my life today! i will be making your recipe, s&p for dinner tonight. (the rings will have to wait a while). thanks s&p--you are continually coming up with inspiring, delicious dishes featuring many of my favorite foods....:)

ahhh, you grate the potatoes and use rings.
I've only made them from leftover mashed. No wonder they look like they have such a nice texture. And I have found a new use for my egg rings ;^)
