Manx Potato Griddle Cakes

This is a celtic treat that was picked up while on the Isle of Man – it makes for a great treat for a late brunch when shared among friends, or even as a item served at gathering where people can add jams and other preserves to the scone.

Baked Potato, 2 large
Gluten-Free all-purpose Flour – Red Mills 1 cup
Baking Powder, .5 tsp
Flex Egg, 1 large equivalant
Soy or Rice Milk, 150 mL
Dailya Cheddar Cheese, 4 oz
Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste – optional)

Place the potatoes on a saucepan cover them with cold water, bring to a boil and cook until tender.

Drain potatoes well and place on low heat to dry them thoroughly, shaking the pan over the heat a few times. Using a potato masher, dry mash (without milk or butter) the potatoes and transfer them to a mixing bowl

Blend the flour with the baking powder and add the mixture to the mashed potato along with the egg, milk and cheese.

Using a wooden spoon, beat this mixture to incorporate all ingredients well

Season with a little salt and pepper (to your personal taste)

Using pastry brush, gloss the surface of a cast iron skillet or griddle with a little oil

Drop large spoonfuls (not to much now) of the batter onto the pan, give each a slight pat with the metal spatula and cook for one to two minutes

Flip the scones and cook the other side for the same length of time

Transfer them to a baking sheet as they are cooked, keep them warm and repeat with remaining mixture.

NOTE: This recipe can make 4 good size meal size cakes, but I tend to make 8 smaller versions to go around as a side to a meal to cut down the carb load and pair it with some good protein such as chicken.
