Potato Cakes
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 15 cakes
  • 250g of potato, peeled
  • 65g of plain flour
  • salt to taste
  • Cooking oil spray
To serve:
  • butter
  • salt and white pepper
  1. Put on the oven to 250C (480F).
  2. Boil the potatoes until cooked and ready to mash. I normally put the water on to boil and pop the potatoes in the water and bring it to the boil and then boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes.
  3. To tell if the potatoes are cooked I normally spear them with a fork and if the fork goes in easily, they are cooked.
  4. Mash the potatoes and then knead in the flour until it is all combined.
  5. Add salt to taste.
  6. On a floured board or counter top roll out the dough until it is about 5mm thick.
  7. Cut out the potato cakes with a cookie cutter and place on a greased baking tray - I used olive oil cooking spray to do this.
  8. As you cut out the shapes collect the leftover scraps of dough back together and re roll to use all of it.
  9. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning after five minutes.
  10. Serve hot with butter, salt and white pepper.
