Livin' La Vida Latke: My Family's Latke Recipe

Channukah is now upon us all, and while I realize I'm pretty late in posting this... that's the beauty of this holiday. Eight nights of chances to post your family's latke recipe to the internet.

So while a small fraction of you reading this might know that a year ago I attempted to make beauty/lifestyle videos, an even smaller fraction of you might know that my ventures in making YouTube videos go even farther back than that. The videos I was making for my hauteteawithhoney channel didn't feel right to me, like I was trying to be something I'm not. Maybe one day I'll try to return to that channel and start again, but lately I've returned to completely different style of vlogging that's more my comfort zone. When I was in high school I used to be pretty into YouTube and its community, but ended up fading away from it all when it became more... industrialized. But after a half-decade hiatus I've returned and it's starting to feel fun again. The videos I'm planning on making don't necessarily have a theme to them, and while I know according to YouTube that's not exactly conducive to channel growth, my mickiebee14 channel is a place I've always used as a dumping ground. Stupid username from my high school days and all. (Can you guess the age I was when I made the channel?)

So in getting back into video making, I invited my friend Katia (blog) to come over and make latkes together as per our tradition, this time with the added twist of filming it.

This is the latke recipe my family uses every year for the holiday season, and let me tell you with or without my nostalgia bias, they are delicious. So whether or not you celebrate Channukah, I hope you enjoy this recipe! And if you try it, leave a comment and let me know what you think!



- 4 Large Potatoes
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Flour
- 2 Tbsp Onion, grated/chopped
- 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice


- Chop potatoes
- Put all ingredients in a food processor/blender and blend
- Let mixture sit for 15 minutes
- Spoon mixture on a hot pan with oil (I use canola or some sort of vegetable vs. olive because it doesn't burn as easily) and brown on both sides.
- EAT!


Stay sweet.
