I always have left over mash and this is a quick way to use it up. These potato cakes are also known as potato scones and are best served with a greasy fry or with the more modest poached egg. Just perfect for hungry children and grown ups after school!
450g Potatoes, cold
100g Self-raising flour
50g Butter, softened
½ tsp Salt
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl into a stiff mixture.
Knead lightly on a floured surface.
Roll out into a 22cm circle and cut into 8 triangles.
Heat a large frying pan on a high heat, lightly greased and cook each potato cake each side for 3-4 minutes.
