BOXTY POTATO CAKES

Serves: Makes about 4 servings

Cooking time: 20 minutes .

Traditional Irish boxty potato cakes use both fresh potatoes and leftover mashed potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw, grated potatoes
    1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/4 cup buttermilk to mix
    Butter or oil for frying



Preparation

  • Place the grated raw potatoes in a clean cloth and twist to remove excess moisture.
    Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine flour mixture into raw potatoes, mashed potatoes, and eggs. Add buttermilk to make a batter.
    Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat and add butter or oil. Drop potato batter by the tablespoon into the hot pan. Brown on both sides (about 4 minutes per side). Butter each boxty and serve hot.
