This recipe was given to my mother in 1940. Mother had lost all of her recipes, collected during 7 years of marriage, in a house fire, so her friends gave her a recipe party. Each recipe was handwritten, and most merely listed the ingredients with no mention of how to put them together. Among them is this cake, which is one of our family's favorites. -Sally Green, Mobile, Alabama

I am 90 years old and have been baking this cake very Christmas for 65 years! My sister-in-law gave me the recipe in 1941 and it has been in demand since. My grandchildren have never been able to figure out why it's called a potato cake since it doesn't taste like potatoes.
