Irish Potato Bread

Irish Potato Bread


Approx. 350g of peeled and chopped potato (this is about 4 smallish potatoes)
1 tbsp of butter
1 ½ tsp salt
1 cup of flour and a little extra for dusting
1 tsp baking powder


Boil the potato pieces until they are soft then drain and mash them with the butter and salt. Mix the flour and baking powder together then, with a wooden spoon, work the flour into the potato until soft dough forms. Tip out onto a workbench dusted with flour and cut into six equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 10 -12 cm diam circle, dusting with more flour if necessary. Cook in a medium hot pan until golden brown and then flip over to cook other side. These can be cooked in a dry pan or they may be fried in a little hot butter or oil.

It's fun and challenging to cook with what's available and the produce is so much fresher than anywhere else. Our family loves Ooooby!
