  • 1 kg potatoes (use floury potatoes such as maris piper, red russets,desire or king Edward)
  • 30 g butter (room temperature)
  • 200 ml double cream (warm)
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • enough cold water to cover the potatoes


  • Peel and wash the potatoes, try to cut them into equal chunky sizes to ensure even cooking.
  • Place in a large pan with cold water, bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for about 25 minutes or until they are soft enough to pierce with a knife.
  • Drain the potatoes and return the pan to heat just for 30 seconds and give it a good shake to dry the potatoes.
  • Turn the heat to very low and add the softened butter, warm double cream and plenty of seasoning to the potatoes.
  • Mash the potatoes using a potato masher until smooth.
  • Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer, ricer, mouli or drum sieve.
