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.

How to Make Irish Parsnip Cakes

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.
  2. 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.
