Dummkopf Style Potato Pancakes

I grew up tasting these delicious potato pancakes.
Why they are called German I never found out but
my Grandmother was German and that's good enough.
She won many blue ribbons with her potato pancakes.
Brown and crispy on the outside while being tender
and creamy soft with potato goodness on the inside.
Served with dollops of sour cream and applesauce.

2 large brown shelled eggs
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds.
1 onion, peeled and grated
6 Yukon Gold potatoes, grated
1/4 cup canola oil

Preheat a griddle to medium heat.
In a bowl combine the eggs, flour,
salt, pepper and caraway seeds.
Mix in the grated potatoes making a batter.
Drop by tablespoonfuls into a hot griddle.
Cook for a few minutes then turn to cook
and brown on both sides until desired.
Serve with dollops on the side.
