Peel the raw potatoes and grate into a clean cloth.
Wring them tightly over a basin, catching the liquid.
Put the grated potatoes into another basin and spread with the cooked mashed potatoes.
When the starch has sunk to the bottom of the raw potato liquid, pour off the water and scrape the starch on to the potatoes.
Mix well and sieve the flour, salt and pepper over it.
Finally add the melted butter or fat.
Knead, roll out on a floured board and shape into round flat cakes.
Make a cross over, so that when cooked they will divide into farls.
Cook on a greased baking sheet in a moderate oven (300°F. electric; gas regulo 3) for about 40 minutes.
This quantity will make about four cakes.
Serve hot, split in two with butter.
