Margaret says - I've always loved potato cakes, so when I was served parsnips cakes at a friend's country kitchen in Cork I wondered why I hadn't thought of this delicious idea before.

Ingredients

1 lb
parsnips, peeled and sliced
2 Tbsp
all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp
butter, melted
pinch of mace
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
flour, for dredging
egg wash
1/2 c
breadcrumbs
vegetable oil, for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a saucepan, cook the parsnips in boiling salted water until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes to absorb stock. Drain and mash.

Add the flour, melted butter, mace, salt, and pepper to the parsnips and blend well.
3
Shape mixture into 4 evenly sized cakes. Lightly dredge in flour, pass through egg wash, then bread crumbs.
4
In a large fry pan over medium high heat, heat the oil. When hot, cook cakes on each side until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
5
Serve immediately, or transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in a preheated 300°F oven for 4 to 5 minutes longer.
