Cheddar and potato cake

Cheddar and potato cake


  1. Cook the Jersey Royals in lightly salted boiling water until almost tender –for about 10-15 minutes. Drain well and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C, fan oven 160°C, Gas Mark 4. Use a little butter to grease a 20cm (8 inch) loose-based cake tin.
  3. Melt the rest of the butter in a frying pan and cook the onion for about 4-5 minutes, until softened. Put them to one side while you slice the Jersey Royals thinly.
  4. Arrange a layer of sliced potatoes, onion and Cheddar in the cake tin, season with black pepper and repeat the layers. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool for 10-15 mins, then turn out carefully and serve in wedges with salad leaves.

Top tip: Add chopped fresh chives or parsley to the layers if you like.
