Lucky Boxty Pancakes

You’ll Need:

# 8oz. (225g) cooked potatoes, mashed
# 8 oz. (225g) raw potatoes, peeled
# 1 tsp salt
# oil for frying
# skimmed milk

Procedures : # Grate the raw potatoes into a linen cloth
# Wring them out over a basin thus catching a little of the liquid
# Leave this liquid to settle until the water on top is clear
# Place the grated raw potatoes from the cloth into another bowl with the mashed potatoes and mix
# Pour off the water from the top of the potato liquid and pour the remaining starchy sediment on to the potato mixture in the other bowl
# Add the salt and flour then mix the mixture well
# Make a well in the middle of the mixture then add enough skimmed milk to give a batter of dropping consistency
# Beat the mixture well then allow to stand for a couple of minutes before cooking
# Heat a thick based frying pan or griddle and grease with a little oil
# Drop spoonfuls of the potato batter into the pan and spread evenly
# Allow the mixture to cook on the underneath then turn and cook on the other side
# Serve warm with a sprinkling of sugar
# For your Halloween party hide a coin, wrapped in greaseproof paper, in one of the pancake
