THE STORY
OF DANNY MULLIGAN
FROM MULLINGAR

There was a lad by the name of Danny Mulligan who lived in Mullingar. with his Mammy.

Everyday Danny wud go to de field on de other side of the hill with his wheelbarrow and dig up the potatoes.

When he had enough potatoes he would wheel his wheelbarrow back up the hill and down the other side.  When he arrived home  Danny’s Mammy would wash the potatoes and boil them in a pot.  Then Danny and his Mammy would sit down for supper with delicious Irish potatoes and Irish bacon mmmmmm

They did this for many years.until one day the weather turned very bad altogether.  A fierce wind blew and it poured rain.  Danny went out to the field with his wheelbarrow.  When he dug the potatoes Danny struggled up the hill with the fierce wind and the rain pouring down.  At the top of the hill an almighty wind blew and knocked over Danny’s wheelbarrow…… and all Danny’s potatoes rolled down the hill.   Poor Danny Mulligan !!!

At the bottom of the hill poor Danny collected all his potatoes but they had no skin on them !!!  “How can we have de potatoes without a shkin on dem ???” said Danny to his Mammy……and poor Danny was crying.

“Ahh will you whist with your crying Danny Mulligan” said Danny’s Mammy.  “Don’t worry your poor head.  your Mammy will make potato cakes instead”

So Mrs Mulligan boiled the potatoes and then made potato cakes for Danny and they sat down and had a delicious supper.

And that’s the true story of Danny Mulligans Potato Cakes.

THE STORY OF
THE POTATO CAKE

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Back in the day……

before the arrival of chicken nuggets or lasagne to Irelands shores ….

your typical Irish family meal was jacket potatoes with vegetables and meat. That was pretty much every day except there was fish on Fridays and Roast on Sunday.

Sometimes there were left-over potatoes and as kids we loved to make Potato Cakes with these…

This was a classic example of “Left-over Cuisine”. Instead of throwing out food the food is made into another tasty snack. (And of course this reduced Food Waste)

First we removed the skin, then mashed the potatoes, added flour and butter. Maybe added other left-over ingredients like bacon or cheese. The fun part was making the potatoe cakes with our hands :)
Then we fried the potato cakes on the pan. It was such a delicious snack in the evening or for breakfast.

The Irish Potato Cake Company was started 2020 to bring back this traditional Irish home snack. We make our potato cakes fresh every day pretty much the same way as we made them as kids way back in the old days (except we make a hell of a lot more of them !!)

Enjoy :)
