SERVES

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 500g white potatoes (Maris Piper works well)
  • 50g salted butter plus 10g for frying
  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Method

1
Peel and chop the potatoes and boil until soft.
2
Mash the potatoes with the butter and salt.
3
In a bowl combine the flour and baking powder and add the mash. Using your hands combine it all together to form a dough.
4
On a well-floured board roll out the dough to the thickness of a pound coin.
5
Use a large side plate as a template and cut out circles.
6
Score each circle into quarters (but keep as a whole).
7
Heat a large frying pan and add a small knob of butter. Once melted, lightly fry on a medium heat each circle, turning halfway through.
8
Once cooked, separate the quarters and serve with topping of choice - we recommend black pudding and egg, or spinach and egg.
