    Just made this for my husband (my tester) as “dessert”. At first he thought it was “interesting” and by the end of the latke, he pronounced it to be very good. Will definitely make it again (but this time I’ll be more careful with the bowl that toppled over and half the mixture fell on the floor.

    Another great addition to our “latke repertoire.” Can’t wait to make this! Would you top it with greek yogurt?

  4. Very easy to make and we enjoyed the taste of the latkes very much. I found it a little difficult to turn the latkes as the batter was too loose.

    these were very tasty. I will make them for chanukah along with the potato latkes for a change

    Interesting combination of ingredients. Nice taste and texture; lighter than potato latkes. I might try mixing in some chopped nuts next time. It would also work nicely for Pesach or Rosh Hashana.

    P. S. I asked my husband to help me make this, something I rarely do. He did almost all the preparation except for beating the egg whites. He just thanked me and said he enjoyed doing it.

    These were very tasty. But, they are very delicate latkes. Much lighter than their potato counterparts. The taste is great – would be great for Rosh HaShanah too ;) You do get a work out beating those egg whites.

    Made this for shabbos but being that it was just two of us I tried dividing the recipe in thirds well I messed up somehow will try again when whole family is here

      They freeze well if double wrapped (saran wrap then in freezer Ziploc,) it’s just the two of us also and I found it easier to make a whole recipe (of most things) and freeze! You should see our freezer!!!

  10. These were excellent. Even my husband loved them.
    They will definitely be served again.
    Only challenge is the number of bowls – which I reduced by one by using one that I beat the yolks for the mixture. worked out great
