I'm sorry I have been having trouble locating the recipe my husband used for our potato cakes. I did send him lots of recipes that day, but I think he made the one his old mother in law used to make.
I found this one first:
Potato & Carrot Pancakes (vegan)
Credit for this ABSOLUTELY YUMMY recipe goes to Margaret Ogilvie.
These pancakes are fantastic for weekend lunches.
You will need:
4 medium-sized potatoes
2-3 medium-sized carrots
1 medium-sized onion
1 tsp curry powder
1 heaped tsp self-raising flower
2 egg-equivalents (Egg Replacer, Egg Like or No Egg)
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
1 Coarsely grate the potato and carrot. Finely dice the onion.
2 Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.
3 Fry the mixture in spoon-sized quantities in a fry pan with sufficient oil to cover
the bottom of the pan. Flatten into pancakes and cook on both sides until golden
brown and the potato and carrot is cooked through.
4 Serve as a side dish or as a meal on its own.

Layered Potato Cake
I think this is it, it comes from the blog Exclusively Food Potato Pancakes Recipe
I found another with cooked potato, but we didn't make that as potato cakes are meant to be grated and squeezed and don't look like the picture, but flatter and crispier.
