Potato lovers Irish recipe for boxty

Traditional Irish potato cakes, or boxty, are mostly associated with the north midlands of Ireland in Connacht and Ulster. They are absolutely delicious! We literally cooked up a batch last night and had to share the recipe with you. :)

There are some variations on the classic recipe, such as boiling the patty like a dumpling or baking it like a loaf.

With the modern palette being more diverse, some people add spices or vegetables into the mix. However, the plain old griddled style is the original and traditional and wonderfully tasty.

Recipe:

Ingredients:
1 cup raw, grated potatoes
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup (about) milk to mix
Butter or oil for frying
Sugar (optional)

Method:

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 enough mix 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 with or without sugar.

Yield: about 4 servings

Sit back and get your munch on! Enjoy
