scillonian tattie cake (ovo vegetarian)

Published April 2, 2017 by lisaolisa

Every year for Christmas, Mum gives us a tea towel calendar. This potato cake recipe comes from an Isles of Scilly-themed towel. A much fancier, meatier version can be found here: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2763/sicilian-potato-cake

This looks to be perfectly British: boiled, bland, and full of pantry staples. When we make this, we’ll need to substitute shortening for the lard to keep it veg.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. plain flour
  • 6 oz. lard
  • 1 3/4 pounds potatoes
  • 4 oz. currents
  • 4 oz. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

Boil and mash potatoes. Mix with the other ingredients. Bake in a hot oven for 1 hour.
