    In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until hot. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into hot oil, flattening to form 3-inch pancakes. Fry 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and edges are bubbly. Drain on paper towels. Top with applesauce and sour cream; sprinkle with remaining tablespoon onions. Serve hot.
