This is a potato cake that is alluringly crisp on the outside and meltingly tender on the inside. When I make this for the family I have to make more than just one…
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4-6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 pounds peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and divided
Preheat oven to 450°.
Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl.
With a sharp knife or box grater, slice the potatoes as thinly as possible. Pat the potato slices dry on a kitchen towel.
Melt 2 1/2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch cast-iron or ovenproof heavy skillet over medium heat. Arrange a single layer of potato slices, slightly overlapping, in a circular pattern in pan; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt mixture. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon melted butter over potatoes. Repeat the layers 5 times, ending with butter. Press firmly with buttered foil to pack. Cover and bake at 450° for 20 minutes.
Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes or until potatoes are golden. Loosen edges of potatoes with a spatula. Place a plate upside down on top of pan; invert potatoes onto plate and cut into wedges.
