For an updated take on the classic latke recipe, we opted to bake the potato pancakes rather than fry them in oil. The move makes for thin, delightfully crispy pancakes that are perfectly browned but not too greasy. And while you might not be eager to try a new recipe during Hanukkah, consider this: You can whip up two dozen latkes, all at once, with this method. No messy oil splatters, no frying two or three pancakes at a time. Instead, you’ll have the traditional latkes ready for a crowd in under half an hour, and every single one will be crispy and fresh.
