      RECIPE TITLE "Kartoshnik (Potato Cake)" Author: William "Uncle Bill", Burnaby

    yields8/12 people time-- difficultydifficult


    • 3 large potatoes, peeled and quartered,
    • 5 large eggs,
    • 1/4 cup whipping cream,
    • 3/4 tsp. salt,
    • 3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese,
    • 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese,
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped,
    • 3 tsp. baking powder,
    • 1/2 cup sour cream,
    • 1/2 cup chopped green onions.

    Kartoshnik, when baked, looks like a cake but is eaten like a potato. Serve as you would baked potatoes with your meal.


    1. In a medium size cooking pot, add potatoes, cover with water and boil until cooked.
    2. When done, drain water and discard. Mash potatoes and set aside. Preheat oven to 450 F.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, add whipping cream and salt and whisk until well blended.
    4. Add mashed potatoes and mix until well blended.
    5. Add both cheese and onions and stir well to mix.
    6. Add baking powder and mix well.
    7. Prepare a 9" x 9" oven-proof baking dish by spraying with a no-stick cooking spray or rub inside of dish with butter or margarine. Pour potato mixture into dish and level.
    8. Bake in preheated 450 F oven for 35 minutes or until top has a nice light-brown color. The Kartoshnik cake will rise but will settle when removed from oven. Let cool for about 5 minutes before cutting.
    9. In a small saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter and use as desired on Kartoshnik squares when serving. Cut Kartoshnik into 3" x 3" squares (or as desired) and serve with melted butter, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of chopped green onions.

      Uncle Bill's Tips: You may also use yogurt, chopped chives or bacon bits on the Kartoshnik.
