Potato Devils Food Cake

Karla Everett


I found this written on the back side of a old envelope from a letter my mother had sent my Grandma , post marked was from 1954.

She must have thought it was worth scribbling down and clipping it in her recipe folder , so I'm sharing it with everyone here to enjoy if they wish.
