How to make it

  • Cook the cubed potato in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender. Drain, return to the saucepan and mash.
  • Mix the mash with the grated potato, flour, milk, baking powder, cayenne and salt.
  • Heat a heavy pan until hot, brush with oil and drop heaped tablespoons of the mixture on to the pan and flatten with the back of a spoon or spatula into 2 inch rounds about 1/2 in thick.
  • Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes until the boxty is golden brown on the bottom and slightly puffed.
  • Serve with grilled bacon and eggs for breakfast.

    I love Boxty Cakes. They are delicious and a great comfort food. They are simply perfect made as shown, but I also like to add chopped scallions, minced jalapeno and/or roasted garlic occasionally, depending on my mood and what I'm serving them with. Grated cheese in the mix is also pleasing. Great recipe - great post. Thanks so much!
