to make a batter that will drop from a spoon. Drop by tablespoonfuls
onto a hot griddle or frying pan. Cook over a moderate heat for 3-4
minutes on each side. Serve with a tart apple sauce: or as part of
an Ulster Fry, with fried bacon, fried sausage, fried eggs, fried
black pudding, fried bread, fried soda bread... . An old poem says: .
Boxty on the griddle, boxty in the pan, if you can't make boxty,
you'll never get a man. . (The accuracy of the poem is uncertain.)
