Use old potatoes if you can as they are more floury and give the best result.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb (500 g) potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 4 oz (125 g) flour

Method

Boil the potatoes in their skins and then peel them. Mash them, but not too smoothly. Add the melted butter and knead in enough flour to make a pliable paste. Roll out and cut into rounds. Bake on a hot griddle or frying pan until brown on both sides.

Eat hot spread with butter and sprinkled with sugar, or fry in bacon fat and eat with bacon for breakfast.
