Irish potato cakes
3 cups cooked potatoes
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Bacon grease or butter.
Mash potatoes and warm them up in the oven or microwave.
Mix potatoes with flour, baking soda and salt.
Add enough buttermilk to make a stiff batter.
Heat a large skillet (iron is best), then add bacon grease or butter.
Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the grease to make large or small cakes - whichever you like. Serve immediately with butter.
