    Koiugn Patatez - Breton Potato Cake

    I love the Breton Potato Cake, especially when it is in the company of game stews such as Hare and Venison. I always feel as if I want to add more to the cake perhaps an onion but when served with big stews, you are glad you did not make any additions. This amount is adequate for four people after a long cold day out in the field with the dogs after pheasants. I use my cast iron pan for baking the cake.



    You will need

    625g of boiling/mashing potatoes (I think good old Rua is the best for this)
    150g all purpose flour
    150g butter
    1 egg yoke
    2 tsp ground nutmeg
    Salt and pepper to serve


    Separate the egg and reserve the yolk. Mix with three teaspoons of water to paint the top of the cake. Put aside. Have a pan well greased on stand by. Peel the potatoes and boil in water with a teaspoon of salt until soft. Drain and let stand until dry, then place in a bowl and add the butter cut into cubes. Add another teaspoon of salt, some freshly ground pepper (I prefer to use white) and the nutmeg. Add a couple or more tablespoons of flour and mix well, incorporating more flour as you work it. Fry just a teaspoon in the pan to do a taste test. Adjust the seasoning to your taste. Spoon into the greased pan, flatten the top and paint with the egg and water mixture. Cook in the oven set at 180c of for at least 45 minutes. To colour the top well, you may need to turn the grill on just a few minutes.

    Let us know how you get on VC. I am watching this space

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
