Autumn Comfort Food - Potato Cakes

As an active member of The Orchard at Tesco panel I have got money off coupons to try the new farm brands from Tesco.
It is a traditional Hungarian recipe. You could eat these potato cakes as a snack or as a side dish for soups.


1kg peeled potatoes
3 whole eggs
Pinch of salt, plus extra for seasoning
Oil for frying


Boil peeled potatoes. Do not need to cut for pieces. They should be soft, but hold together.

Mash boiled potatoes.

Mix all ingredients together with your hands. The dough should feel a little sticky.

If your dough is too runny add more flour. Be careful, do not add too much flour, because your cakes will be chewy and undecooked.

Roll the dough to 0.5cm thick on well floured surface. Use pastry cutters to make funny cake shapes.

Fry in fryer on 170 degree for 15 minutes.

Season with salt.
