  • 250g potatoes, cut into cubes
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g butter, melted, plus extra for frying
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp oil, for frying


  1. Cook the potatoes in plenty of salted simmering water until tender. Drain well and mash. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the butter, milk, eggs, mash and plenty of seasoning and mix to a sticky dough.

  2. Heat some butter and a little oil in a large frying pan. Fry dollops of the mixture as you would Scotch pancakes for 3 mins on each side until browned. You may need to do this in 2 batches so keep the fried ones warm in the oven. Serve with crisp bacon and grated mature cheddar, or blue cheese and a drizzle of honey.
