Ingredients

  • 1

    cup raw, grated potatoes

  • 1

    cup leftover mashed potatoes

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 2

    tsp baking powder

  • 2

    tsp salt

  • 2

    eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/4

    cup (about) milk to mix

  • Butter or oil for frying

  • Sugar (optional)

Directions

Place the grated raw potatoes in a clean cloth and twist to remove excess moisture. Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine flour mixture into raw potatoes, mashed potatoes, and eggs. Add enough mix to make a batter. 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.
