DIRECTIONS

  • Brush potatoes clean and place in a pot. Add enough water to just cover the potatoes and cook until done.
  • Pour off water and wait for the moisture to evaporate. Once they feel dry, peel and mash hot potatoes. Add flour, mix, and let the mixture stand in a warm place (around 50 C - not a lot warmer than that or the process will be stopped) for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 150°C.
  • Melt butter. Heat milk. Add melted butter and warm milk into the potato mixture, along with salt and nutmeg. Mix well.
  • Taste the casserole and if it's not as sweet as you would like, add treacle to taste and mix.
  • Pour into greased oven dishes. Only fill the dishes half full as the casserole will bubble and rise a lot in the oven.
  • Drizzle some treacle on top of each casserole. Bake in the preheated oven for 2-3 hours.
