Ingredients:  
9 oz (2 cups) all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Kosher or sea salt
8 oz (1 cup) mashed potatoes, boiled in salted water
1 1/2 cups (8 oz) grated, raw potato (nothing fancy needed, just a regular grater)
8 oz (1 cup) buttermilk (or more if needed)
butter for the pan

Directions:
Directions:
In a small bowl, place the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
Using a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with the grated raw potato, then add the flour and mix well.
Next, slowly add the buttermilk and stir gently (do not over mix)
The mixture should be like a very firm, thick batter; almost like a dough, so add more buttermilk if needed (I just used 1 cup or 8 oz).
Heat a nonstick frying pan or cast iron pan over medium-high heat, and add a pat of butter, just before scooping out some of the boxy batter onto the pan. You are now cooking Irish potato cakes!
Flatten and shape into a nice, round pancake shape and fry until golden brown on the bottom.
Turn the boxty and continue to cook until golden brown on top, too. Consequently, turn the heat down if they are browning too quickly (remember there is raw potatoes which need to cook).
Continue to add a little butter and fry the boxty until all the batter is finished.
