Apple Potato Latkes

Makes: about 12 latkes


2 macintosh apples, peeled and cored

2 large or 3 medium russet potato, peeled

1 medium yellow onion, peeled

 ⅔ cup of tapioca or potato starch (you can also use flour if you’re not gluten free)

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 ¼ teaspoons GF baking powder

½ teaspoon black pepper

Oil for frying


  1. Coarsely grate the apples, potato and onion. I grate mine in my food processor with the grater attachment. Put the mixture in a clean dish towel and squeeze to wring out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Put the shredded mixture in a large bowl. Add the starch eggs, salt, baking powder and pepper, and mix until the flour is absorbed. 
  3. In a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, pour in about 1/4 inch of oil. Once the oil is hot, drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the pan, cooking 3 to 4 latkes at a time. I like to form them in my hand first to make sure they stick together. Use a spatula to flatten the scoops into disks. When the edges of the latkes are brown and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes, flip them. Cook on the other side another 2 to 3 minutes. Latkes may need more time depending on size and thickness. Transfer the latkes to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with applesauce or sour cream.
