Lupie, this is specially for you.... :D
Ok, let's gather all the ingredients. As the recipe is my own, and I kept adding and stirring without pre-measuring the ingredients, you'll have to adjust the measurements by adding a bit at a time until you get the flavour you like. I like it really soft and smooth with a buttery flavour so I do use quite a bit of milk and butter.
Fresh milk (warmed it slightly first)
A pinch of salt
1. Bring water to a boil, with a bit of salt in it to bring it to a higer temperature.
2. Add potatoes and boil for about 20 minutes till soft.
3. Drain the potatoes.
4. Mash the potatoes with butter and fresh milk.
5. Add a pinch of salt to give it a fuller flavour.
If you don't have ready fresh milk, you can substitute with powdered milk. I've done that before.
