Heat a teflon-coated frying pan or griddle and fry the cakes at medium-heat (about 3-4 at a time on a large griddle, one at the time in a frying pan). Fry the cakes a couple of minutes till they are light golden on the underside before turning them and frying them a couple of minutes on the other side. There is no need to grease the frying pan or griddle. The caks swell slightly during the frying.
