Potato Cakes With Poppy Seed
What You Need:
  • 2 pound potatoes
  • Lard
  • Salt
  • 2 oz ground poppy seeds
  • 5 oz flour
  • 2 oz sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. Peel and quarter the potatoes, cover with boiling salted water and cook till nearly soft, then drain off the water into a bowl.

    2. Mash the potatoes and make several holes in the mash with the end of a wooden spoon, going right down to the bottom of the pan.

    3. Fill these with flour and pour on about half of the boiling potato liquor.

    4. Cover and leave at the side of the stove for about 30 minutes.

    5. Pour off the excess water and beat the mixture with a wooden spoon till smooth-it should be very stiff.

    6. Using a metal spoon dipped in hot lard, place spoonfuls of the mixture on a plate and sprinkle with ground poppy seeds, sugar and lard.

    1. Alternatives would be to sprinkle the 'shkubanky' with grated gingerbread instead of poppy seed, or with grated cottage cheese and melted butter.

    2. Fried 'shkubanky' are also excellent; shape the dough into small cakes, dip in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and fry till golden-brown.

    To Serve: 4 - 6
