Potato cake

  • Preparation Time10 mins
  • Cooking Time20 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyEasy
3 tbsp unsalted butter
575g waxy potatoes
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated nutmeg
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1) Melt 2 tbsp of the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and set aside. Peel and grate the potatoes with the shredding attachment of a food processor, or on the wide holes of a box grater. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Drizzle the oil and melted butter over the potatoes and toss to coat evenly.

2) Heat a medium non-stick skillet over a medium heat. Add the potatoes and spread to evenly fill the skillet. Cook the potato cake, adding a few nut size bits of the remaining butter around the edges until the underside is crispy brown, about 10 minutes.

3) Reduce the heat to medium-low and flip the cake by sliding onto a plate and then inverting back into the pan. Cook, adding the last of the butter as before around the edges, until golden brown and the potatoes are cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Serve immediately.
