How to Make Granny's Irish Potato Chocolate Cake


  • 1Boil 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.
  • 2Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 for 1 hour. Checking to see if inserted toothpick comes out clean. DO NOT OVER COOK.
  • 3This 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.
