When I first made these I knew I hit the jackpot. Putting the latke batter in a cupcake pan results in perfect latkes every time! For some reason though, you need to use an disposable aluminum muffin/cupcake pan. That is the trick. (If you try it in a regular cupcake pan and they come out great, let me know!) Besides for it being healthier, I love that there is no need to stand over a pan of oil frying each one! These have the crispy exterior of a fried latke, except you barely use any oil. If you are looking for a healthier alternative with the same taste as a fried latke, look no further.
