I took a trip to Ireland November 2011. I picked up this cookbook called A taste of Killarney, compiled by Jane Bergin. This recipe is from Bricin's, chef Paddy McGuire.

1/3 recipe made 8 nice sized pancakes.

4Turn the griddle to 300F or heat a heavy frying pan. Using melted butter, grease the pan and drop in a little of the mix to make a tester and check for seasonings.

5To make a full boxty, drop in a good spoonful and pat gently using the back of the spoon until the mix resembles a pancake. Cook gently on each side for at least 3 minutes or until golden brown and tender.

6Chefs note:
Boxty can be served with almost anything. As an accompaniment to a main meal or filled with fish, meat or vegetables and sauce. The Germans make a bosti that is very similar and serve it with pureed apple that is quite delicious.
