Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

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.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Buttermilk, huh? I'll have to try these. Potato Cakes are a great comfort food.
