What you need:
Boxy is a traditional potato dish, celebrated in the rhyme:
Boxy on the griddle, boxy in the pan,
If you can't make boxy, you'll never get your man.
1 cup raw potato
1 cup mashed potato
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Large knob of butter, melted
About 1/2 cup milk
This is what you do:
Grate the raw potato into a bowl. Turn out onto a cloth and wring, catching the liquid. This will separate into a clear fluid with starch at the bottom. Pour off the fluid, scrape out the starch and mix with the grated and mashed potatoes. Sieve the dry ingredients and mix in along with the melted butter. Add a little milk if necessary to make pliable dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface. Divide into four and form large, flat cakes. Mark each into quarters but do not cut right through, and bake on a griddle or in a heavy pan.
If liked, more milk and an egg can be added to make a batter that can be fried in bacon fat like drop scones
