Make do Monday – Fruity potato cakes

Lindsay has got another lovely recipe for you to try at home, again very little sugar but the marmalade gives the cakes both sweetness and a lot of flavour.


4 oz cooked potatoes

2 oz plain flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 oz Margarine

1 oz sugar

1 tablespoon of marmalade

1 oz dried fruit


1. Mash the cooked potatoes in a bowl ( do not add any milk)

2. Add the flour, baking powder and dried fruit to the potatoes.

3. Cream the margarine marmalade and sugar in a separate big bowl.

4. Add the cooked potatoes mix to the creamed mixture.

5. Once mixed turn out onto a floured surface and make about ten flattened round cakes .


6. Heat a heavy frying pan / griddle  and cook for two minutes on each side. Once both sides have browned cook for a further 5 minutes.

7. Dust with sugar and mixed spices.


They are lovely to eat whilst still warm!
