Irish Boxty

Irish boxty are potato pancakes that are traditionally served on the Celtic New Year, but also throughout the year.


1 cup raw, grated potatoes
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
Butter or oil for frying


1. In a clean cloth, place the grated raw potatoes and twist to remove excess moisture.
2. Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine flour mixture into raw potatoes, mashed potatoes, and eggs. Add enough mix to make a batter.
3. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat and add butter or oil. Drop potato batter by the tablespoon into the hot pan. Brown on both sides (about 4 minutes per side). Butter each boxty and serve hot with or without sugar.
