Irish potato pancakes are made from a combination of mashed potatoes and raw potatoes.
Typically made using leftovers from the previous day, this recipe hearkens back to the traditionally frugal Irish lifestyle.
Potato pancakes are also a terrific meal for the days following a holiday meal, where there’s almost always a bit too much on the table!
Delicious Irish pancakes make a terrific light evening meal (evening tea).
Or you can wrap them around a slice of meat for more substantial dinner or serve with jam or sugar for breakfast or a snack.
You can make one large pancake, with indentations for cutting in quarters, or make individual pancakes. They all taste delicious no matter how you serve them!

You can add enough of the flour mixture to the batter to create dough, which you’ll roll out and cut into circles.
You can invert a glass onto the dough, to get perfect circles. These take slightly longer to cook than the batter pancakes do.
You can also cook the pancakes in bacon grease; it’s particularly good for an evening meal. Add the crumbled bacon used to create the grease and chopped scallions or onions.
For breakfast or tea, use butter and sprinkle with sugar, jam or syrup.
