I can hardly boast that this is an old Irish recipe passed down through the family, because Mum doesn’t have any Irish ancestors.  Even so, I like the sound of these baked instead of fried potato cakes.  I started off thinking that they would be little less fattening until I came to the last part about splitting them in two and spreading them with butter….   Despite that or maybe because of it – they sound great.
