*You can also substitute about 1/2 a sweet potato. Bake, peel skin and mash. This will act to bind the latke much like the flour does and the sweet potato adds a touch of sweetness.
Please use some creative direction-these measurement are only suggestions. I like to make my batter and then fry one up to test it. If it needs more salt or its too thick or runny you can easily change the mixtures proportions.
