Yes, exactly how I make Irish potato pancake (griddle) cakes, aka Farls. - 19 Apr 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I make this exact recipe, altho I like abit of green onion and garlic sprinkled in mine. My husband was born and raised in Ireland, and there, they call this farl. one thing to note, depending on how wet your potatoes are, you should adjust your flour accordingly.this is a great and easy recipe. Also it's easily tweaked to suit your family's taste. one of my favorites alterteration... even tho It's not traditional is to add a nice slice of Monterrey jack on top when it's nearly done..so it's all melty... omg.

I made this recipe (or one exactly like this) just before Thanksgiving 2014. I made it because it is so similar to the Norwegian Lefse recipe (there is one on this site) that I make and I was curious. I made it as directed and it tasted very similar to Lefse. I rolled some of the dough paper thin, like we do for lefse, and it was identical. Lefse adds a pinch of sugar, for browning, and some cream for a moister dough and also is cooked on a dry griddle. This recipe is a treat and because you don't roll it so thin, it's much easier to make. I'll make this again! It's wonderful to eat plain with a little butter or you can spread it with jam. Try it, it's a wonderfully tender bread. - 12 Apr 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
