Though they eat these today in Ireland all the time, Boxty Potato Pancakes have been one of the most traditional Halloween recipes made during centuries.

These pancakes are creamy, rich, and just wonderful. I think they're best when cooked with onion and served savory, but you can also serve them plain with sugar or powdered sugar.

How to Make Irish Boxty Pancakes for Halloween

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a medium mixing bowl, combine the grated potato, onion (if using), and buttermilk (this keeps the potato from discoloring).
  • 2In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • 3Add grated potato mixture, egg, and mashed potato.
  • 4Mix well. Batter should be about the texture of thick pancake batter. Add additional flour or buttermilk if necessary.
  • 5Melt butter in a heavy skillet or on a griddle.
  • 6Over medium heat, drop large spoonfuls of Boxty batter into skillet, making approximately 6" pancakes.
