Potato Cakes recipe

Potato cakes are small, round patties of potato that you could serve as a side dish or use in the same way as a burger. This version of the dish is also known as ‘latkes’.


  • 3 large potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. plain flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel the onion and the potatoes and then grate them.

  2. Place the grated veg into a bowl and lightly whisk the eggs. Pour the eggs in with the potato and onion and add salt and pepper. Add the flour and stir until the mixture just begins to hold together.

  3. Form patties of the mixture in your hands.

  4. Heat some oil in a pan until shimmering and then fry the potato cakes for 6-7 minutes on each side.

  5. Put the potato cakes onto a bit of kitchen towel before serving to drain any excess fat.

Serve these cakes with some salsa and a big green salad for a tasty lunch. This will serve between four and six people, depending on how big you make the patties.
