Someone asked what these were, sorry cant find the comment now to say who :( but here you are.....
A kind of potato Cake Floodies are to have originated from canal workers who cooked them on a shovel over the fire!
Grate a raw potato into a bowl , you can also add grated carrot. Sprinkle with flour and add household milk (milk made from powder) or milk from rationsuntil a batter is made. Spoon into a hot frying pan and cook until golden turning halfway through.
These can then be served warm with sugar for a sweet snack or as they are for a belly-warming elevenses!!
