The Making of Potato Cake

Killeeneen More, Craughwell, Co. Galway

To make potato cake the people would wash and boil some potatoes. When boiled they would mix with a little flour ‘a pinch of salt and a little soda’ and then roll flat and shape into squares. They would be baked on a griddle for about 25 minutes. Old people called the first square of the cake “cheachru na chacha”,
