    Ian & Carol Rice's Note:

    Boxty is the traditional Irish fare for Shrove Tuesday. Composed of grated raw potatoes, mashed cooked potatoes, with flour added as a binding agent, Boxty is either fried in a pan or browned on a griddle. It is mentioned in a traditional children's Irish jingle "Three pans of boxty, baking all the day. What use is boxty without a cup of tay?"

    1. 1
      Squeeze grated potatoes as dry as possible in a tea towel.
    2. 2
      In a bowl, combine the potatoes, flour, and salt. Stir in the milk gradually, using enough to make the mixture hold to together.
    3. 3
      Let the mixture stand 1 hour.
    4. 4
      Heat a 23cm - 25cm heavy frying pan until very hot. Drop in the butter and let it melt. Pat the potato mixture into the pan with a spatula, distributing it evenly.
    5. 5
      Cook over medium heat until the underside is set and golden brown.
    6. 6
      Slide the pancake onto a plate and invert it back into the pan.
    7. 7
      Let the other side brown.
    8. 8
      Serve the pancake straight from the pan with brown sugar and melted butter.
