Potato cakes

Potato cakes

No one ever says no to potatoes, so put a smile on the faces of your dinner guests with these easy-to-make (and oh so delicious) potato cakes.

Serves: 10


  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
  • 2 cups freshly mashed potatoes
  • Up to ¼ cup milk, as required


1. Preheat oven to 200°C and grease a baking tray.

2. Sift flour into a bowl and then add butter, salt and the dill. Mix in mashed potatoes and add milk as needed to blend ingredients into a soft dough.

3. Using your hand, make round cakes that are about seven centimetres in diameter and one-and-a-half centimetres thick. Place the cakes onto prepared baking tray and bake for 20 minutes or until golden, without turning. Serve warm.
