1. Peel and grate the potato; pour the buttermilk over the top.
2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
3. Add grated potatoes with buttermilk; add the beaten egg into the dry ingredients; mix well. (The batter consistency will be like pancake batter's.)
4. Melt the butter on a skillet. Pour batter into the skillet in 1/3 cup portions; spread the batter out to approximately 5 to 6 inches in diameter; flip when cooked and cook the other side until golden brown. Repeat until all batter is used.
