MY MENU OF THE DAY: I love potato cakes so I was delighted to find this simple recipe: These potato cakes are not sweet cakes, they are however an excellent way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! Serve hot with a little butter with fried eggs, baked beans, or even with a nice steak!
1/2 lb cooked potatoes
1/4 tsp salt
I tablespoon butter, melted
60g plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
A little milk
Prep:5min › Cook:5min › Ready in:10min
Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl.
Add mashed potatoes and melted butter.
Mix into a smooth dough, adding a little milk if necessary.
Turn on to a floured board and knead until smooth. Divide in two.
Roll out each piece to a circle 1/4" thick. Cut into 6 or 8 triangles.
Cook on a heated greased heavy frying pan until nicely browned then turn to brown the other side.
