Potatoes in dessert? Many cooks never think of the possibility. But this delicious cake gets its moist texture from Idaho spuds. We raise them here on our farm, and our son has also developed and markets potato ice cream! —LaRene Reed, Idaho Falls, Idaho

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2012

"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."
