¼ c. freshly chopped onion

1 egg, beaten

½ c. all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

Using about 1/3 c. batter per pancake, form into pancake shape and place in oil. Fry in batches 3-4 minutes per side or until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towels; serve hot. Makes 8. Serve with applesauce or sour cream, if desired.
