Potato Pancakes

I'll always remember my mom and aunt making potato pancakes like these when I was little.  Just a simple thing, really, but those hot potato cakes always tasted so good!  I whipped some up for lunch today and they're now a favorite with my kids.  I made one batch with a little wild rice I had left over and they tasted great!  They're best served the same day, but if you have any left over, just reheat in the oven.  

3 cups peeled potatoes, finely shredded
(drain slightly)
1/4 cup grated onion (I used sweet)
2 eggs, well beaten
1-1/2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, onion, and eggs; mix well.  In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add to potato mixture and combine well.  Drop by generous tablespoons onto a hot, greased griddle.  Brown on both sides until cooked evenly.  Makes 12, 2-inch pancakes.
