Preheat oven to 200C or 180C fan. Brush a 20cm springform pan with melted butter. Combine remaining butter and crushed garlic in a small bowl. Peel potatoes and slice as thinly as possible.
Make a layer of potatoes in the base of the pan, overlapping slightly. Brush with some garlic butter and season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Repeat layers, brushing each with garlic butter, and seasoning every couple of layers. When you make the final layer, press down to compact the potato, before giving a final brush of butter.
Stand pan on a baking tray, cover with foil and bake for 1 hr. Uncover and cook a further 30 mins, until potato is tender and the top is golden brown. Run a knife around inside of the pan and release the sides. Cut into wedges to serve
