Posted for Zaar World Tours. This has been adapted from a British cookbook called "Favourite Harvest Recipes - Traditional Seasonal Fare" and is slightly different to other potato cake recipes in that it includes baking powder. I have since added the garlic, spring onions and cheese to the original recipe to pep it up a notch, so here is the original recipe with my additions added in :) ZWT REGION: England.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes until half cooked then add the onion and garlic into the pot. Mash together once potatoes are fully cooked.
  2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients to make a soft dough. It should not be sticky.
  3. Roll out onto a floured board until it is 1/2 inch thick (1.25 cm) and cut into round or triangle shapes. Cook 5-7 minutes on each side in a heavy based fry pan until golden brown. Serve immediately with plenty of butter.

Hubby kept saying these are good what did you do. I really enjoyed these they were so easy to make I used an egg white instead of a full egg. I served this with fish and peas. Excelent meal and will do these again for sure. Thank you.

These were enjoyed by all. I normally can't eat mashed potatoes but these were great.
