Two Potato Pancakes

I love this latke recipe from the Six O Clock Scramble! I made it a few nights ago to rave reviews, even from the picky young princess in the house. I made some lime-cilantro sour cream to serve along with these pancakes, and the tangy flavors went really nicely with the earthy sweet potatoes. These are awesome to heat up in the toaster oven the next day, too.

1 large sweet potato
1 large russet potato
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional of course)

vegetable oil for frying

Peel and grate the potatoes. Drain them by placing the grated potatoes into a clean tea towel and squeezing out as much moisture as you can. Combine with the egg, flour, and seasonings in a large bowl. Cook in several tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium to medium-high heat, until crispy and brown on both sides.
