Shape the potato cakes to the size you prefer, but do not pack them too tightly.

It is best to use a dessert ring about 8 cm (3 inches) in diameter to keep the cake neat and round.

I advise you to make all the cakes on a baking sheet and to freeze uncooked any you will not be using immediately.

Stage 9 - 5 min.

Remarks

It is really important to rinse the potatoes thoroughly after grating to remove the starch which would otherwise make the cakes stick during cooking.
