4       large baking potatoes
                 sprinkle of onion powder
         1/4     tsp     baking powder
                 whites of 2 jumbo eggs
                 pepper to taste
         2-4     tbsps   matzoh meal, just enough to keep mixture together 
                 salt (optional)
         Grate potatoes by hand to retain bubbe’s texture
         Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
         Cook on cast iron preheated skillet in a 500 degree oven.  Skillet 
         is placed on bottom shelf and not removed from oven.  Spray lightly
         with Pam.  Pan must be exceedingly hot, latkes must sizzle when dropped
         in pan.  Latkes must also be very thin in order to cook properly.
         Cook 3 minutes on each side.
 		I  serve them directly from the oven, reheating them causes them
	to lose
         their crispness.
