Specially made for Hanukkah, latkes are potato pancakes that are fried in oil in recognition of the ancient lamps that held only enough oil for one day but miraculously burned for eight.

    I should have listened to the other reviewer and not made this. They are tasteless mush.

    Don't make this recipe!! Every year I make a whole mess o' latkes for my annual Shiksa Chanukah Party. This year, it being Thanksgivvukah, i decided to alter the sacred menu with a Thanksgivvukah mash up, enter the sweet potato latke. I know my way around basic cooking, but these were a nightmare. They did not hold together. and were VERY greasy. It was hard to get the temp of the pan right so that they were cooking and not burning. If you do try them don't make them any bigger than 2T ea
