The potato cake is cooked on a griddle until there is a nice brown crust. It is eaten warm and well buttered and when baked properly is about 1 inch thick. It is traditional to bake it on November Night and Christmas Night. It is a very heavy cake and you would have to be very hungry to finish all of it at once.
