“Cevabun’s” Duchess Potatoes

I saw this recipe on Food Buzz posted by my foodie friend “cevabun”. First, the photo caught my eye and I said to myself, what beautiful cookies. Then I actually read the title and to my surprise they were potato cakes or Duchess Potatoes. What a wonderful idea as a side dish to my sautéed zucchini I was planning to cook for dinner that day. To my big surprise, the blog is in Romanian language and I had no clue what to do. But thanks to Google Translate the problem was quickly solved. I changed the recipe to my liking: I added some more spices and reduced butter and eggs. And although mine Duchess Potatoes don’t look as half as pretty as the original does, but they were super delicious!!!


1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
salt to taste


1. Directions:
2. Peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Let the potatoes boil in water with salt until they are cooked (soft). Remove potatoes from heat and drain the water. Return the pot to the heat (low heat) and mash together with butter. Let the mashed potatoes slightly cool down before adding the lightly beaten egg. Mix well to get a smooth consistency. Add the nutmeg, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, and garlic and onion powder. Mix to combine. Season mashed potatoes with salt if needed.
3. Pipe the potatoe cakes onto a greased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 6 – 8 minutes in 400*F preheated oven, or until golden brown.
