How to Make Granny's Irish Potato Chocolate Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil your potatos and mash. Sift all of the dry ingredients. Melt butter. Now mix all ingredients together mixing with a wooden spoon. I lightly beat the eggs before adding. Also make sure their are no big lumps in the potatoes. Mix very well.
    Pour batter into a greased & floured bundt pan.
  2. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 for 1 hour. Checking to see if inserted toothpick comes out clean. DO NOT OVER COOK.
  3. This recipe does not call for and icing, however if you like you can add one. We have always eaten without one. I hope you will enjoy this cake.
