Reviews for Idaho Potato Cake
"my favorite chocolate cake recipe!"
"This cake is very moist. I especially liked the fact that it isn't as sweet as regular cake. I added a cup of chocolate chips, as one reviewer suggested. Very nice!"
"this was so easy and good use of leftover potatoes. I wouldn't say mine came out fluffy, more like a cross between a brownie and cake. Next time I make it I will add some semi sweet chocolate chips to add even more chocolate flavor."
"Moist, fluffy andmost of all YUMMY!!"
