The Irish potato pancakes, are best made with leftover mashed potatoes form the night before. I like to add black pepper.


  • 3 cups cooked potatoes
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • pinch salt
  • 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.
